Multiple Selves: Portraits in Print from Rembrandt to Rivera

This event occurs Daily from 09/01/2017 to 11/05/2017

Cost: Free

Location Name: Dallas Museum of Art

Location Address: 1717 North Harwood Dallas, Texas 75201 Click for Google Map

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.

Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints displays art from the Edo period (1603–1868), when a wide range of painting styles and significant developments in woodblock printmaking made visual art accessible to many in Japan. Figures in hanging scrolls and screens helped adorn residences, especially in the larger metropolitan areas such as in Kyoto, Osaka, and Edo (current-day Tokyo), during a time when interior decorations were still sparse. While religious scrolls with important Buddhist figures for worship such as Amida Buddha and other bodhisattva, hung in temple halls, depictions of people engaged in daily activities, and other popular subjects were enjoyed in the homes of wealthier townsmen. Historical figures were often heralded as upholding the ideals of the past and even ghosts – or figures who met unfortunate or untimely deaths – came to be depicted in painted form.
