English: 'The Resting Horseman'

Le Nain brothers, possibly by Louis Le Nain (1593-1648)
'The Resting Horseman', probably 1640s

The brothers Antoine, Louis and Mathieu Le Nain shared a studio in Paris from about 1630. They specialised in scenes of the poor, depicting them with a sombre dignity that was unusual for the period. These paintings were once criticised for 'their low and often ridiculous actions', but by the 1850s they were admired for their realism.
