Two hundred years ago, the doors of the Louvre opened to the public for the very first time. The palace of the French kings had been transformed into a museum that today stretches over an enormous architectural ensemble right in the heart of Paris. The royal collections first assembled by Francis I in the sixteenth century have been steadily enriched over the centuries, making the Louvre into perhaps the greatest storehouse of artistic tradition in the world.The thirty magnificent images superbly reproduced in this postcard collection highlight incomparable works of art from the fifteenth through the nineteenth centuries. Creations by Corot, David, da Vinci, de La Tour, Gainsborough, Goya, Holbein, Ingres, Raphael, Rubens, Titian, and Watteau, among others, demonstrate the extraordinary range of artistry that has found its place in this museum.
The light of New York is revelatory, dramatic, and argumentative, as if its job were to pull the inhabitants of the city back from their harsher conclusions about the nature of the place. The city may seem narrow, frenetic, and confined, but over this can ride a cool smiling sky that stretches gently to a comforting infinity. If you surrender properly to the whirl of motion in New York, the seemingly chaotic action will cease. . . .
In a mirror image of this attribute, the city can bring a frozen image to life as if it actually were moving, as if it were three-dimensional, as if it carried sound, and as if it were not an image but, somehow, real.Tourist postcards of New York abound, but for sheer artistry, none can compare with Nathaniel Lieberman's breathtaking photographs of this magical city. These thirty awe-inspiring images are a perfect evocation of the astonishing light and extraordinary vistas that define New York.
