The Le Nain Brothers: Peasants and Piety in 17th-Century France
C.D. Dickerson, curator of European art, Kimbell Art Museum
Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 12:30 PM
The Kimbell Art Museum is fortunate to own one of the most beautiful paintings by the brothers Le Nain, who were active in Paris during the 1630s and 1640s and are chiefly famous for their scenes of peasants. C. D. Dickerson will explore the world in which the brothers lived and worked, seeking clues to their paintings of these peasants. Were they unfiltered representations, or do they hold deeper meaning?
