Gallery Talk: "Character! What Portraits Reveal"

A Gallery Talk by Joan Plummer

Sir Joshua Reynolds (United States, 1723 - 1792), Portrait of the Lady Elizabeth Somerset, 1777, oil on canvas, 24 1/8 x 20 1/8 inches. The Joan Whitney Payson Collection at the Portland Museum of Art, Maine. Gift of John Whitney Payson, 1994.49.

Explore a number of 19th- and 20th-century portraits in the PMA collection to see how the artists reveal information about their subjects, and learn what that information says about both the subjects and the artists.
