Face to Face. The Neo-Impressionists at IMA

Are portraits somehow more than mere likenesses?  Can a portrait truly reveal or imply elements of character, identity, and personality? And,  what is the effect when that portrait is rendered according to certain rules of color and methods of brushwork?

The Indianapolis Museum of Arts current exhibition – Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886-1904 – examines these intrinsic features of great works of art.  This groundbreaking exhibition organized by the IMA brings together some of the most intriguing portraits of late 19th-century Europe.

The Exhibition runs from June 15 thru September 7, 2014.  Get more details online at http://www.imamuseum.org/exhibition/face-face-neo-impressionist-portrait-1886-1904
