Georges de la Tour
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
First published in 1992, this is a magnificently illustrated, in-depth study of the art of Georges de la Tour (1593-1652) by Jacques Thuillier (1928-2011), a renowned specialist on 17th-century art. So little is known of la Tour's life, Thuillier proceeds 'by roundabout means', employing 'all the delicate subterfuge of devotion'. The book includes details of documentary sources and a catalogue of works. Translated by Fabia Claris.
