Bringing together some 60 examples drawn from collections around the world, Cézanne Portraits, March 25 to July 1, 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 been exhibited in the United States. nga.gov.
