DMA Gets New Old Painting

lethierThe Dallas Museum of Art has announced the acquisition of Erminia and the Shepherds, an early work by the French painter Guillaume Guillon Lethière (1760–1832). The neoclassically-minded painting was shown at the Salon of 1795 in Paris. Lethière, son of a French diplomat and an African woman, was a prominent figure in French art, achieving the highest academic rank by the end of his career.
