Sully wing - 2nd floor - Room 912 - Georges de La Tour

French painting

Rediscovered during the 20th century, Georges de la Tour is now recognized as a leading figure in 17th-century French art. He was one of the leading Caravaggesque painters, a style he may have discovered through the work of the Dutch painters of the Utrecht school, who used the same chiaroscuro effects.
