FAME at Throckmorton Fine Art in NYC. "...Portraiture has a lengthy, rich, and diverse history in art. In our era, portraits of the famous have a pleasant association: they are familiar and frequently serve as cultural and temporal markers. These portraits, though, can be enigmatic, showing recognized faces but only hinting at complex personalities and the quixotic flow of fortune and tragedy. An effort has been made to exhibit images that are not well known (and some have, in fact, never been printed or publicly shown), in a bid to add something unexpected to what is otherwise familiar."
