Description

This exhibition of prints and photographs investigates the traditions of self-portraiture and portraits of artists. It includes examples of traditional, formal portraiture as well as portraits in more informal settings. There are portraits of the artist at work, portraits of artists anachronis-tically included in historical depictions, as well as symbolic and allegorical self-portraits.
