Intimate Portraits

Exhibition date:
06 August 2005 to 06 November 2006
New Zealand
Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki

Historically portraiture has typically been concerned with recording resemblances of the great and the good, or those wealthy enough to commission a likeness. This exhibition focuses on a much humbler form of portraiture, where the sitters are the artists' intimates - their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives, lovers, children, friends or indeed selves.
