Valentin de Boulogne and the Poetics of Realism"Valentin de Boulogne and the Poetics of Realism" with Keith Christiansen, John Pope-Hennessy Chairman, Department of European Paintings: http://met.org/2f4Xg5m
In this talk, Christiansen will explore the ways in which Valentin de Boulogne, who is the subject of the exhibition “Valentin de Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio,” explored new ways of engaging the viewer and, in doing so, conveyed his own melancholic response to the human condition. This is the second and final lecture of Christiansen’s series on this exhibition
Valentin de Boulogne (before 3 January 1591 – 19 August 1632), sometimes referred to as Le Valentin, was a French painter in the tenebrist style.
“Painting Music in the Age of Caravaggio,” on view through April 5, pairs paintings with musical instruments similar to those depicted, and an audio component allows visitors to hear music played on them. http://met.org/18XzGQh
