Norton Simon Museum of Art | GAZE | Portraiture after INGRES
Norton Simon Museum of Art says:
In conjunction with the installation of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s stunning Comtesse d’Haussonville, 1845, on loan from The Frick Collection in New York, the Norton Simon Museum presents Gaze: Portraiture after Ingres. This exhibition of close to 150 paintings, sculpture and photographs from the Norton Simon collections traces artistic engagements with portraiture following Ingres’s influence in the early to mid-19th century through to the present day, and examines why this genre, so seemingly laden with restrictions and expectations, appealed to some of the greatest avant-garde painters in the history of art. The exhibition includes such artists as Gustave Courbet, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, among many others.
