Paris: City of Art: Expanded Edition by Jean-Marie Prouse de Montclos

Now fully updated and expanded, this towering volume is more comprehensive and compelling than ever. Organized in three parts Antiquity and the Middle Ages, Modern Times (from the Renaissance through the French Revolution) and the Contemporary Era the book explores in great depth the myriad treasures that Pariss artists and architects have created throughout its history, taking the reader on a tour of centuries of artistic achievement. This revised edition brings the history of Parisian art and architecture up to the present and into the future, featuring notable additions to the citys skyline such as Jean Nouvels Fondation Cartier and Quai Branly Museum, as well as designs for major forthcoming buildings, including Frank Gehrys Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation and Thom Maynes La Tour Phare (Lighthouse Tower), which will be the centrepiece of an ambitious overhaul of La D??fense and the tallest structure in the city after the Eiffel Tower.
