Product Description:
This film studies the vast history of the Louvre, from its very beginnings to present day. It explains its original function as a fortress built to protect the city of Paris in the Middle Ages and travels through many years of renovations, additions, demolitions, wars, and disasters. Century by century, the viewer can follow the architectural innovations in which the edifice first served as a residence for royalty and evolved to become a traditional location for exhibitions and eventually the famed museum of fine art that it is today. This study of history, culture, and art, including architectural art, ends with the creation of the famed glass pyramid that stands in the heart of the complex.
