La Tour

The catalogue underlines the skill and talent for observation possessed by Maurice Quentin de LA TOUR (1704-1788) who gave new life to the art of portraiture and to the technique of pastels so as to offer an original panorama of cosmopolitan society of the 18th century. Extensive notes and a detailed chronological chart precede the catalogue, which lists and reproduces nearly 1,000 works.
