Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Georges De La Tour was born on March 19, 1593, in the town of Vic-sur-Seille in the duchy of Lorraine in what is now northeastern France.  Both sides of his family were bakers.  Sometime in his teens or early twenties he visited Italy or Holland, or perhaps both.

Whatever native art training he may have had, he now acquired Dutch and Italian accents that stayed with him for the rest of his life.  In 1617 La Tour married Diane Le Terf, daughter of the Duke of Lorraine's fin (showing 500 of 3659 characters).
