This exhibition explored elements of continuity and change in the social, political and aesthetic functions of portraiture from antiquity to the present. Representative examples of Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Renaissance and Baroque portraits were included, together with later works from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The exhibit featured sculptures, textiles and coins from antiquity, as well as drawings, prints, sculptures and paintings by such artists as Rembrandt van Rijn, William Hogarth, George Caleb Bingham, Mary Cassatt, Henri Matisse and Chuck Close.
