* The outstanding photographs in this book focus on an odd detail in a selection of the world's most famous paintings in the largest and best known museum - they only show feet and shoes. With texts in four languages from an outstanding art expert and icon of Mexican literary studies * A must-have for all shoe fetishists and art lovers * Winner of the 2012 Printissimo Award in the category Art, Austria's award for outstanding print products In acclaimed photographer Lois Lammerhuber's pictures, shod feet in the Louvre paintings reveal undreamt-of information about people. The details are not only separate works of art, but also studies on centuries of shoe fashion and an excursion into social history. Almost intimate, the photographs raise the world of feet and footwear to eye level, showing delicate shoes and stout limbs; feet without shoes and shoes without feet. The viewing angle is a special one, not only for art enthusiasts but also for shoe lovers. Raphael, Goya, or Ingres did not produce or design footwear, but they all 'recorded' shoes, contributing to a history of footwear and at the same time creating fashion archives of shoes that people stepped out in between 1280 and 1863. In a brilliant discourse, Margo Glantz, an icon of Mexican literary studies, introduces the viewer to original thoughts on painting and footwear design, the history and sociology of shoes.
