The face tells all, reflecting the soul in its infinite mystery and glory. Exchange lingering glances with kings, moguls and movie stars at the major exhibition of original Western Art, tracing 400 years of human image from Renaissance painting to 2oth century photography.
Revelations of power, prestige and privilege will emerge from the glint in the eyes, the tilt of the head or sway of the back.
Each individual captured or canvas or film reflects an era's perception of race, sexuality, culture and gender.
Here are works of art by Frans Hals, Titian, Cezanne, Renoir, Degas, Warhol, Hockney, Picasso, Matisse, Goya, Lucian Freul, Cindy Sherman, Gilbert and George, Yousuf Karsh, and Atget to name just a very few.
