Item description for Dogs in the Louvre by Francois Nourissier & Elisabeth Foucart-Walter...

Overview
Drawn from the myriad departments of the Louvre, a collection of canine-themed works of art reproduces each entry in annotated detail and includes coverage of such examples as Diana the Huntress, the paintings of Le Nain, and Rubens's The Coronation.

Publishers Description
Throughout the ages, artists have frequently depicted dogs as symbols of positive values such as courage, loyalty, and vigilance. Whether serving as guards, guides, companions, or hunters, dogs have a very strong presence in the great artworks at the Louvre. They appear in the form of Mesopotamian statuettes of the third millennium BC; they flank peasants in Le Nain's paintings, or sit loyally at the queen's side in Rubens's The Coronation. They may be portrayed as active, accompanying Diana the Huntress, or pampered, as cherished lap dogs nestled on cushions.This beautiful volume is packed with works from all of the Louvre's many departments. Each painting or sculpture is shown in its entirety and in detail, to highlight the canine presence, and is accompanied by short, illuminating commentary. The book opens with a preface in which the prize-winning author draws upon his own personal experiences with man's most loyal companions. Dogs in the Louvre provides a delightfully unusual tour of the most visited gallery in the world, and invites the reader to engage in a fresh way with some of its perennially inspiring themes. It is a fitting tribute to man's best friend.
