The Gibbes Museum of Art is well known for its extraordinary portrait collection spanning the eighteenth century to the present. This exhibition focuses on a very special type of portrait: artists painted by other artists. These poignant paintings document friendship, respect, and deep admiration shared among fellow artists.
