Nine very different nativities, from the apocalyptic warnings of a martyr, through the Emperor Augustus, to Maurice Denis’ nativity in a contemporary French town.
Children playing, amateurs rehearsing, music outdoors, and Schubert himself at the piano: paintings by Manet, Degas, Thomas Eakins, Édouard Vuillard and others.
From Duccio, Campin, Maurice Denis, Joseph Stella and others. Paintings which changed this most popular of motifs, and were innovative, from 1311-1933.
Mud as painted in the Danish countryside, and in Norway. But the last word goes to war: both in the Franco-Prussian and First World Wars.
Religious works, including two Nativities and a fine painting of Joseph and Mary walking to Bethlehem, Naturalist and Impressionist styles too.
A major German painter in the late 19th century, he is often claimed to have been an Impressionist, but these works look very Naturalist to me.
