|17 February - 14 May 2006|
Rudy Komon gallery, Upper Level
This major exhibition brings together painted self-portraits by some of the world's greatest artists from the mid 16th Century to the beginning of the 21st Century. It features fifty carefully selected self-portraits in oil painting, including a mix of familiar faces and more surprising choices. Major works by artists renowned for their self-portraits such as Velásquez, van Gogh and Kahlo feature alongside works by less well known artists, whose self-portraits are of exceptional quality and interest. The international range of artists represented also includes Carracci, Cézanne, Close, Freud, Hogarth, Reynolds, Rubens, Warhol, Whistler, Valadon and Hopper.
Exhibition co-organised by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, and the National Portrait Gallery, London.
