Including a new critical introduction, this book presents the first English translation of two pamphlets penned by French art critic and amateur archaeologist Quatremere de Quincy (1755-1849) that were highly controversial in their time: Letters to Miranda, which condemns the French military's confiscation of masterpieces from Italy and northern Europe in order to build the Louvre, and Letters to Canova, in which the author celebrates the British Museum's prising of famous marble sculptures from the Parthenon.
