Museum Exhibition: "Valentin de Boulogne, Beyond Caravaggio"
Check out the beautiful tenebrist work of this Caravaggisti, now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
"This is the first monographic exhibition devoted to Valentin, who is little known because his career was short-lived—he died at age 41—and his works are so rare. Around 60 paintings by Valentin survive, and this exhibition brings together 45 of them, with works coming from Rome, Vienna, Munich, Madrid, London, and Paris. Exceptionally, the Musée du Louvre, which possesses the most important and extensive body of Valentin's works, is lending all of its paintings by the artist."
