The Nasher Museum is proud to present the special ticketed exhibition, "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). A favorite of the Medici court, Dolci was a celebrated and popular artist in his day, but his personal and original interpretation of sacred subjects fell out of favor in the 19th century. The Medici's Painter invites us to see this artist with new eyes. The meticulously painted and emotionally charged works that were carefully selected for this exhibition, from U.S. museums as well as important private collections and major museums in Europe, allow for a reassessment of an Old Master painter whose reputation deserves to be restored.
