Multiple Selves: Portraits in Print from Rembrandt to Rivera

Multiple Selves: Portraits in Print from Rembrandt to Rivera examines how the artist views him or herself as the subject of a work of art. The installation presents work drawn exclusively from the Dallas Museum of Art’s collection and features artists such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Diego Rivera, and Piet Mondrian. The introduction of photography in the mid-1880s, the evolution of art toward abstraction in the 20th century, and new scientific discoveries and disciplines — such as psychology — encouraged artists to create portraits that differed from lifelike interpretations. The works on view span from the 17th century through the 20th century and highlight this artistic change.
