Summary note
"Not rediscovered until the twentieth century, the works of Georges de La Tour retain an aura of mystery. Their veritable celebration of light and the familiar, visible world, blinds the beholder to a deeper understanding of the meanings associated with vision and the visible in the early modern period"-- Provided by publisher.
