Treasures can as often be found in small frames as in large ones. This group of diminutive oils features landscape, portrait, and figure paintings by artists from the United States, France, and Holland. The exhibition unveils a recent gift to the Taft collection from Minor and Daniel LeBlond in memory of R.K. LeBlond. Village Interior, attributed to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (French, 1796-1875), features a street in a small French village with peasants bathed in sunlight and shadow. The Taft permanent collection includes five works by Corot, who was one of Charles and Anna Taft’s favorite painters.
