Analysis of The Adoration of the Shepherds
Using his typical chiaroscuro or dramatic light-to-dark contrast, Georges de la Tour brings intimacy to this 1644 picture titled The Adoration of the Shepherds which is heightened by our proximity to the group.
Close as we are, and in agreement with the silence of the medium of painting itself, this seems to be a portrayal of silent prayer and reverence for the Christ child who is the attention of all eyes in the space.
This Baroque painting is inthe Louvre in Paris, France.
