Le Nain, Le Nain brothers (Louis, Antoine, Mathieu) (1600?-1650?) by Scholes, Robert
Le Nain brothers (Louis, Antoine, Mathieu) Le Nain (1600 – 1650) There were three brothers of this name, all born in Laon, but established a common workshop in Paris. They remained unmarried and are traditionally said to have worked in harmony, often collaborating on the same picture. They are usually treated as a single artist, since no one has done a convincing job of identifying works by individual brothers.
