This volume offers a tour of the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nantes by writer Paul Louis Rossi, providing a discussion of works ranging from the Italian Primitives to the early twentieth century, and recreating, in the author's words, "cette familiarite qui s'etablit entre le Visiteur et les personnages de la peinture. Il lui semble a chaque randonnee qu'il surprend de nouvelles indications qui le renforcent dans sa passion et sa conviction. Il se fait a l'idee que son oeil s'est encore perfectionne et qu'il lui donne, comme a un combattant, une sorte d'invulnerabilite du jugement et de la memoire." Well-preserved volume is in original wrappers.
