The Artist Revealed: A Panorama of Great Artist Portraits
Sept. 16 – Dec. 31, 2011

Highlights from the National Academy’s extensive collection of artist portraits from the early 19th century to today will be on view for the first time in the Academy’s history. Most of the more than 1,000 artists’ portraits in the collection were submitted by artist members as a condition of their membership. Taken as a whole, the works in the collection constitute one of the largest and most important holdings of portraits in the country. Included among the works on exhibition are self-portraits by Asher B. Durand, John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux, Thomas Eakins, Jacob Lawrence, Wayne Thiebaud, Chuck Close, and Susanna Coffey.
