The Artist Revealed: A Panorama of Great Artist Portraits

Curated by: Diana Thompson

This exhibition includes some of the finest artist portraits in the National Academy’s collection, spanning the period from the early 19th century to the present day. The majority of the more than 1000 artists’ portraits in the collection were submitted by artist members as a condition of their membership in the institution. This group of works forms one of the largest and most important holdings of painted portraits in the country, and draws attention to the exceptional artists that have been at the heart of this organization since its founding in 1826. Included among the works on exhibition are self-portraits by Asher B. Durand, John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux, Thomas Eakins, Edwin Walter Dickinson, Ivan le Lorrain Albright, and Jacob Lawrence. Among the contemporary examples are self-portraits by Chuck Close, Wayne Thiebaud and Susanna Coffey.
