(p.105) Epilogue
Georges de La Tour and the Enigma of the Visible

Dalia Judovitz

Fordham University Press

The epilogue presents a reassessment of La Tour’s reception and pictorial impact in light of his unique and inexplicable disappearance from the annals of art history. His pictorial legacies to both the seventeenth century and to the twenty-first century are considered insofar as they provide a platform for engaging in broader reflections on the nature of vision, the visible, and viewer response. The importance and endurance of La Tour’s artistic legacy is summed up in terms of his conceptual approach which calls the very nature of painting into question.

Keywords:   annals of art history, conceptual approach, La Tour’s rediscovery, pictorial legacies, pictorial reception, viewer response
