Following Caravaggio's death in 1610, the French artist Valentin de Boulogne (1591-1632) emerged as one of the great champions of naturalistic painting, demonstrating the influence of Caravaggio's style and subject matter. In Rome, Valentinwho loved the tavern as much as the painter's palettefell in with a rowdy confederation of artists but received commissions from the city's most prominent patrons. With discussions of nearly 50 works, representing practically all of Valentin's painted oeuvre, this book explores both the artist's superlative depictions of daily life and the tumultuous context in which they were produced. Essays by a team of international scholars highlight the contributions of this seminal practitioner of Realism who prefigured the naturalistic modernism of Gustave Courbet and Edouard Manet two centuries later.
