Valentin de Boulogne, Beyond Caravaggio

The audio commentaries included in this app will make you discover the best works by Vermeer and Valentin de Boulogne. The curators of both exhibitions will be your guide

Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting

The Musée du Louvre, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, is holding a landmark exhibition about renowned painter Johannes Vermeer. For the first time since 1966, this event will bring together twelve of the Delft master’s paintings—a third of his total known body of work—providing an insight into the fascinating relationships the artist maintained with other great painters of the Dutch Golden Age.
Thanks to special loans from the most prominent American, British, German, and—naturally—Dutch museums, visitors will be able to see Vermeer in a new light.

Valentin de Boulogne, Beyond Caravaggio

Considered the most brilliant of the painters coming in the wake of Caravaggio, and one of the greatest French artists – indeed, the equal of Poussin – Valentin de Boulogne (1591 – 1632) spent the greater part of his carrer in Rome executing prestigious papal commissions.
With all the freedom of Caravaggio, Valentin borrowed his predecessor’s dramatic realism, chiaroscuro, and subject matter, allying a neo-Venetian chromatic sensibility with a totally new sense of the grandiose and the melancholic.
Owner of the world’s largest collection of his works, the Louvre, in partnership with the metropolitan Museum of art, is presenting the first monographic exhibition of the most significant representative of the Caravaggesque movement in Europe.
