Le Nain family (French family of painters, active 17th century)

Note: A French family of painters comprised of three brothers, Antoine, Louis, and Mathieu. They lived together and shared a studio in Paris, and signed all their works 'Le Nain,' without attribution to any single person. Eighteenth-century sales catalogs chose from the three names at random to assign authorship. Early 20th-century scholars have ascribed small paintings on copper to Antoine, and austere, larger peasant scenes to Louis. This division of hands will be found in almost all the subsequent literature on the artists, although there is no evidence to support it. Some works have been identified as being collaborative. The basis of their celebrity since the mid-19th century is the artists’ depiction of the poor.
