    Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University opens a new exhibit – the first of its kind in the United States – dedicated to the works of Carlo Dolci, an important 17th-century Italian painter of the powerful Medici family. A devout Catholic, Dolci chose religious subjects most often in his work, and the exhibition – with major loans from the Louvre in Paris, Uffizi Gallery in Florence and private Italian collections – features 30 paintings and works on paper, including a rare 17th- century Florentine still-life painting.
