Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886-1904

And what is the effect when that portrait is rendered according to certain rules of color and methods of brushwork? These are subjects addressed in Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886-1904, a groundbreaking exhibition organized by the IMA that brings together some of the most intriguing portraits of late 19th-century Europe.
