The Le Nain brothers – Antoine, Louis, and Mathieu – were celebrated painters in Paris in the early 17th century. Little is known of their lives; unmarried and childless, they lived and worked together, producing some of the most arresting paintings of their time. This exhibition features more than 50 of their works, from religious paintings to enigmatic scenes of peasant life.

Site in Sight: How Location Shapes Perspectives (9th–12th Grades)

Art has the power to illuminate, inform, and enrich one’s perspective, leading the viewer to analyze, question, and hypothesize. Each person’s point of view is highly subjective and individual. The way a particular artist views an event or an issue is strongly influenced by personal background, lived experiences, place of origin, and choice of medium. The fifteen pieces included in this curriculum entitled “Site in Sight,” are connected by the individual voice of each artist examining his or her unique perspective of a concept, place, time, or idea.
