Volume CLXXVIII 202-944-2050
Cézanne Portraits Bringing together some 60 examples drawn from collections around the world, Cézanne Portraits is the first exhibition devoted to the famed post impressionist’s portraits. The revelatory exhibition provides the first full visual account of Paul Cézanne’s portrait practice, exploring the pictorial and thematic characteristics of his works in the genre, the chronological development of his style and method and the range and influence of his sitters. Several paintings are exclusive to the National Gallery of Art’s presentation, while some works have never before been exhibited in the United States. National Gallery of Art, West Building, through July 1.
Outliers and American Vanguard Art Some 300 works explore three distinct periods in American history when mainstream and outlier artists intersected, ushering in new paradigms based on inclusion, integration and assimilation. The exhibition aligns work by such diverse artists as Charles Sheeler, Christina Ramberg and Matt Mullican with both historic folk art and works by self-taught artists ranging from Horace Pippin to Janet Sobel and Joseph Yoakum. It also examines a recent influx of radically expressive work made on the margins that redefined the boundaries of the mainstream art world, while challenging the very categories of “outsider” and “self-taught.” National Gallery of Art, East Building, through May 13.
