Description:

Join the Harwood for this portrait based exhibition, featuring works from their own collection. Portrait denotes a “likeness,” an image of someone real, an existence it captures for us, an essence it proffers for discernment. This primary sense of portraiture, as a vital link to a natural order outside the mind—to reality—is arguably the most constant trait in the long and winding course
of Western visual representation, whether in its pictorial manifestations as painting or drawing, its plastic embodiment as sculpture, or its disclosure in the camera’s eye.
