In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, though bars, restaurants, shops and even museums began reopening from June 3. Schools started again on September 14. Finger crossed.

.:. art / a meteoric painter 
February 7 through September 27, 2020
reopened from May 28, 2020

Thu-Sun 11am-7:30pm

no slideshow .:. Currently considered among the most outstanding painters in 17th-century France, de La Tour (1593-1652) left few documents concerning his life. His works were nearly forgotten, and he entered the official history of art in relatively recent times. As his refined candle-lit chiaroscuro technique reveals, de La Tour was certainly influenced by Caravaggio's art, but we don't know if he ever travelled to Italy.
.:. This major exhibition, with artworks on temporary loan from twenty-eight museums and galleries from all over the world, has also provided the opportunity to provide an updated catalogue of the artist's works. The mistery of a meteoric painter begins, perhaps, to be revealed.
