Opening at the Kimbell Art Museum in May and to San Francisco in October is the first major exhibit in this country devoted to the Le Nain brothers: Antoine, Louis and Mathieu whose whole range of production will be highlighted with over 50 works: altarpieces, portraits, private devotional pieces and the deeply-moving images of peasants for which they are so famous. The exhibit will unveil new research as to the attribution of works to the individual brothers. This has always been an art history mystery.

"The Brothers Le Nain: Painters of Seventeenth Century France" will be coming to the Legion of Honor in October. You can view the catalogue online

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
