Portrait Prints from the Barber’s Collection

Featuring stunning works by Rembrandt, Goya, Cezanne and Picasso, this display spans four centuries of portrait printmaking.

It explores the different compositional approaches, styles and techniques adopted by artists that contribute to an evolving dialogue about the purpose and practice of portraiture. Organized to complement the exhibition ‘Lasting Impressions‘, the portraits are arranged in pairs to encourage the comparison of the individual artistic responses to the fundamental challenges of creating a likeness through the print medium
