Three versions of Philome Obin's Nativite

Posted by on September 19, 2021

Philome Obin painted three versions of a nativity scene. The first in 1954 called "La Naissance de Jesus". The next version was painted in 1961, titled "Nativite". There are many subtle differences between the three paintings. In the painting from 1961, there is a lamb at the feet of Mary. The buildings are more detailed and smaller in the earlier painting. A third version was painted in 1976, part of the Beverly and John Fox Sullivan Collection. How many differences can you find?
