Excerpt from A Survey of the Evolution of Painting With Reference to the Important Pictures of the Louvre

This book has been written in response to the demand of those who have attended my lectures upon the History of Art as illustrated by the pictures of the Louvre. The object of the lectures was to prepare the visitor for an intelligent appreciation of the galleries of Europe. Names, facts, and criticisms are given as obtained from standard works upon the subject. The material is so arranged that the book may be used in one of three ways: -

(1) By following the numbers in the margin, hurried tourists may use it as a guide to the Louvre. Asterisks indicate the pictures remarkable for their beauty or for their importance in the history of art.

(2) For the more leisurely tourist, it will serve as a book of reference. If a visitor desires information concerning a certain picture, the name of the artist or of a saint mentioned can be found by reference to the Index.

(3) The student may employ it as a manual for the study of art history. Reference is made, not only to the paintings and drawings of the Louvre, but to famous pictures of other galleries, copies of many of which may be seen at the Beaux Arts. As an artist's works are grouped together in the text, it may be well to read a chapter in one room, and then visit the other rooms in which hang other works by the same artist. - Example: Read Chapter XXV in Room VIII, then visit the Thomy-Thiery collection.
