Item description for Georges de la Tour by Jacques Thuillier & Fabia Claris...

Georges de La Tour ranks with Vermeer and the Le Nain brothers among those seventeenth-century painters whose unmistakable talent is matched only by the aura of mystery that surrounds the artists themselves. Jacques Thuillier's groundbreaking monograph, first published in 1993, places La Tour's oeuvre in the specific context of the Lorraine region where he lived and worked, but also repositions La Tour alongside the greatest European masters. Available for the first time in paperback, this beautifully designed volume, complete with an illustrated catalogue raisonné and translations of key documentary sources, remains the essential reference work on this important and fascinating artist.

Reviews - What do customers think about Georges de la Tour?

Excellent  Jun 17, 2004
Excellent printing, great selection of works with close-ups of most. I use mine as a painting reference when I can't get to the Met. If you are a painter and like Sargent or Valasquez, then you should own this book.
His dramatic use of light - often placing the source of illumination within the picture - enchants, conveying a sense of serenity, calm.

The works of La Tour, apotheoses of seventeenth century French classicism, are unified in remarkable composition by warm, rich colors and placement of light. His body of paintings, rendered with brilliant luminosity, are unforgettable. So is this magnificent monograph by College de France professor and specialist in seventeenth century art, Jacques Thuillier.

A lushly beautiful volume, Georges De La Tour, holds over 300 stunning illustrations and a comprehensive catalogue of works. Both art historians and aficionados will delight in the flawlessly reproduced full-color double-page illustrations that remind one of the artist's deft touch and draftsman's skill.

A tribute to La Tour is long overdue, but worth the wait when the end reward is this work of impeccable scholarship and illustration.
