Portraits by Ingres: Image of an Epoch

Widely regarded as the greatest portrait painter of the nineteenth century and one of the most brilliant draftsmen of all time, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780–1867) dominated French painting for over half a century and left an enduring legacy, influencing such varied artists as Cézanne, Degas, Matisse, and Picasso. This major international loan exhibition of his portraits comprises some forty paintings and ninety-two drawings, the largest such assemblage ever presented outside France. Together, they document a pivotal epoch in French history while affording visitors a rare opportunity to appreciate the refinement, originality, and beauty of Ingres's portraiture.
