Associate Curator for Research Susan Behrends Frank and collector Dr. Joseph Lichtenberg discuss Shaping a Modern Identity: Portraits from the Joseph and Charlotte Lichtenberg Collection, which features photographs by artists like Ansel Adams, Tina Barney, Andres Serrano, and Chuck Close, as well as an etching by Lucian Freud. They share how the works in the exhibition expand our understanding of portraiture, and explore what makes them essential and compelling images for this collector.
