The Nasher Museum is proud to present «The Medici's Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence,» the first exhibition in the United States devoted to the luminous and meticulously rendered paintings of Italian artist Carlo Dolci (1616–1687).

At 7 p.m., Durham artist William Paul Thomas will give a talk and demonstration on draftsmanship and portraits, inspired by the work of Carlo Dolci. His talk is part of a contemporary artist series–three artists who will share how their work connects with the special ticketed exhibition, «The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence.» Light and shadow, detail and abstraction, composition and tension, capturing a subject’s gaze—these issues tested old master painters like Carlo Dolci, who influenced many generations of artists.

The artists in this series will talk about how they pull from a long tradition of portraiture, how they are inspired by and grapple with faith in their work and how their work connects, and does not connect, to a larger history. The talk is free and open to all. Tickets are required to enter «The Medici's Painter.»
