Pierre Rosenberg, director of the Louvre museum in Paris from 1994 until this past April, will present the James Haley '50 Memorial Lecture at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in McCormick 101.
The title of his address is "Georges de La Tour: An Exemplary Case of a Painter Whose Reputation Was Revived Thanks to Art Historians." La Tour was a French painter who lived from 1593 to 1652. For three centuries, his work was attributed to other artists until art historians properly identified it in the early 1900s.
A distinguished art historian, Rosenberg is a member of the Acadimie Francaise. He has published extensively on painting and drawing of the 17th and 18th centuries and has organized numerous exhibitions throughout the world.
His lecture is being organized by the Department of Art and Archaeology .
