This book offers a complete overview of the life and art of La Tour. Drawing on new historical research, it discusses his career, possible travels, the context in which he worked, and such issues as the contemporary replication and dissemination of his art. It examines the relationship of La Tour's art to the Counter Reformation and to the work of other artists in Nancy, Paris, Rome, and Utrecht. The book also includes the results of recent scientific research into La Tour's materials and working methods.
