July 15 - September 3, 2000

Become familiar with the face behind the art with Face to Face: Artists & Their Work, an exhibition featuring 25 photographic portraits of famous artists beside examples of their graphic work. This union of portraits and works of art brings together the names, faces, and graphic work of well-known artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Edward Hopper, Alfred Stieglitz, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, to name a few. Some of the photographers who took photographic portraits of the artists featured include Arnold Newman, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Frederick Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and George Daniell.

All of the works in this show are works on paper, and most are from the Worcester Art Museum's permanent collection. Both the artists' portraits and their works are interesting enough by themselves, but when placed side by side, they create an even fuller understanding of the artists represented.
