About the Exhibition

This exhibition of 16 photographs and one etching from the Lichtenbergs’ collection expands our understanding of portraiture as an invention forged between artist and subject. Created by artists including Ansel Adams, Tina Barney, Chuck Close, and Imogen Cunningham, the images span more than 80 years and depict subjects ranging from well-known artistic and literary figures to anonymous men and women from all walks of life.
