Recent news: The Palace of Versailles devoted two significant rooms to Gaston La Touche in their recent Exhibition “Versailles Revival 1867-1937” which ran from 19th November 2019 to 15th March 2020, featuring paintings from private collections and museums.
The highlight will be the recently discovered “Fete de Nuit” which was commissioned for the Elysee Palace in 1906. This painting was thought to be lost and took pride of place in the Exhibition.
Born in St Cloud, near Paris on 29th October 1854, Gaston La Touche showed an early vocation for an artistic career. From the age of ten he spent every available moment of recreation in drawing and finally managed to obtain permission from his parents to take lessons from a Monsieur Paul, who quickly discovered his natural aptitude and encouraged the young boy to persevere with his studies.
