LOUVRE-LENS: THE GUIDE 2015. Xavier Dectot. Somogy editions d'art, Paris, 2016. 296 pp. 23 x 16 cm. ISBN 9782757208960 In English.
Publisher's description: The opening of the Louvre-Lens is an exceptional opportunity to rethink the centuries-old relationship between the collections in the Louvre Museum and its visitors. At the heart of this museum is the "Galerie du Temps", whose design was entrusted to Studio Adrien Gardere. It presents 205 exhibits from all the departments in the Louvre in a single space. Displayed in chronological order, these works have previously always been seen in separate exhibition spaces, being issued from different civilisations, schools or techniques. On this journey through different civilizations, the gallery allows visitors to compare universally recognized masterpieces, such as Gudea, Prince of Lagash, the statuette of Queen Tiye Beside King Amenhotep III, the Discophoros, the Angel's Head mosaic from the basilica in Torcello, Self-Portrait with a Friend by Raphael, the Bather by Falconet and Oedipus and the Sphinx by Ingres. This guide to the Louvre-Lens discusses and reproduces in their entirety the works exhibited in the "Galerie du Temps", allowing us to prolong and deepen our visual encounter with art and history.
