Art historian, curator, and museum director Michel Laclotte has been at the forefront of French cultural life over the past half century. This informal autobiography sheds light on his brilliant career with warmth and directness. Highlights include twenty years as chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Musee du Louvre, heading the team that created the Musee d'Orsay, and taking the reins of the Louvre to lead the effort that culminated in the museum's transformation into the "Grand Louvre," one of the world's preeminent cultural attractions.
