Exploring new modes of portraiture in recent American art and their links to traditional approaches to the genre, this catalogue features reproductions of some 75 paintings, photographs and drawings that include works by Warhol, Close, Sherman, Neel, Katz, Weems and other contemporary artists as well as representative portraits by such late 19th- and early 20th-century figures as William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri. Five essays discuss postwar trends in American portraiture from a variety of perspectives, examining such topics as the political portraits of Leon Golub, elements of performance in portraits by contemporary photographers, and the significance of images of celebrities used in advertising.
