The Louvre and the Tuileries

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The palace of the Louvre was begun by Francis I in the sixteenth century and continued by his successors, especially Louis XIV. Important additions were made during the nineteenth century. The Tuileries palace, so named from the tile kilns (tuileries) which once occupied the site, was burned in 1879. Nothing reminds of the structure except two wings connected with the Louvre."—Webster, 1920


Webster, Hutton Modern European History (Boston, MA: D.C. Heath & CO., 1920)
