About this title:

Synopsis: A fascinating analysis of the styles, techniques, and subjects in which de La Tour worked introduces the master of the nocturnes to a general audience. Georges de La Tour played a particular role in the history of art. Although today he is recognized as one of the most celebrated and beloved French painters, after his death in 1652 he sank into complete oblivion. Three centuries had to pass before historians rediscovered him. Then, little by little, from 1915 onwards, scholars reconstructed his works, his career, and his life. Starting out from an analysis of two of the artist’s masterpieces, St. Joseph the Carpenter and The Adoration of the Shepherds, and through a series of well illustrated and accessible essays, rich in information and historical references, some of the greatest international historians and art historians cover almost his entire output, models, and sources of inspiration, as well as his iconography and technique.

About the Author: Valeria Merlini and Daniela Storti are art historians and renowned restorers. Dimitri Salmon is an art historian and author of numerous volumes and articles on Georges de La Tour and seventeenth-century French art.

Book Description Georges de La Tour gilt als einer der wichtigsten französischen Maler des 17. Jahrhunderts. So wenig man über ihn weiß, so sehr schaffen es seine Bilder, beim Betrachter große Emotionen auszulösen. Die Macht seiner Bildsprache lebt von dem akribischen Studium von Licht und Schatten, charakteristisch sind seine dunklen, nur durch Kerzenlicht akzentuierten Gemälde, die ihn zwar als Nachfolger Caravaggios kennzeichnen, aber darüberhinaus seine besondere Originalität bezeugen. Der Band schließt eine Lücke in der Forschung zu Georges de La Tour. Er widmet sich primär der Analyse von zwei seiner Meisterwerke: »Die Anbetung der Hirten« und »Joseph als Zimmermann«. Hervorragend durch Detailaufnahmen illustrierte Essays würdigen diesen großen französischen Meister und sein Werk! (Text engl., Skira) 24 x 28 cm, 216 S., 190 farbige Abb., geb.
