Publisher Comments:

The Tuileries Garden is a masterpiece of garden design and one of the worldand#8217;s most iconic public art spaces. Designed for Louis XIV by landscape architect Andrand#233; Le Nand#244;tre, it served the now-destroyed Tuileries Palace. It was opened to the public in 1667, becoming one of the first public gardens in Europe. The garden has always been a place for Parisians to convene, celebrate, and promenade, and art has played an important role throughout its history. Monumental sculptures give the garden the air of an outdoor museum, and the gardenand#8217;s beautiful backdrop has inspired artists from Edouard Manet to Andrand#233; Kertand#233;sz.

The Art of the Louvreand#8217;s Tuileries Garden brings together 100 works of art, including paintings and sculptures,and#160;as well as documentary photographs, prints, and models illuminating the gardenand#8217;s rich history. Beautifully illustrated essays by leading scholars of art and garden studies highlight the significance of the Tuileries Garden to works of art from the past 300 years and reaffirm its importance to the history of landscape architecture.
