Georges de La Tour: L’Europa della Luce

An exhibition dedicated to the most famous French painter of the seventeenth century and his relationships with the great masters of his time

Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Duomo, 12, Milan, Italy

Palazzo Reale, Milan, hosts the first exhibition in Italy ever dedicated to Georges de La Tour, through prestigious comparisons among the French Master’s masterpieces and those of his contemporaries (Gerrit van Honthorst, Paulus Bor, Trophime Bigot, Frans Hals and others), running February 7 – June 7, 2020. This exhibition brings a new point of view on the genre painting and on the luministic experimentations, dealing with the profound questions that still surround the work of this mysterious artist.
La Tour’s extraordinary images, decisive gestures and inner contemplation are captivating and exciting after a period when he fell into disregard owing to the highly unique nature of his work. He makes angels out of ordinary people, and saints without a halo or iconographic attributes. His subjects are people of low rank, portrayed in intimate scenes with no landscape background, nocturnes and almost monochromatic works with a geometric layout, simple but very modern for the time.
