    One of the many strengths of the Art Museums is their portraiture collection, with works in multiple media across disparate cultures and centuries. Beginning with a portrait of a woman from 2nd-century Rome and ending with a disputed self-portrait of Gauguin from 19th-century France, this talk will explore the diverse ways in which Western artists depicted individuals, including themselves, through renderings both obvious and suggestive.
