.:. art / a meteoric painter 
February 7 through June 7, 2020
9:30am-7:30pm, Thu and Sat till 10:30pm, Mon from 2:30pm (tickets sold till an hour before closing time)

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.
