The Modern Self-Portrait: From Scarcity to Ubiquity, by James Hall
Talk | The Wallace Collection
Thursday 5 November 2015 - 14:30 until 15:30
This autumn's series of lectures looks at portraiture through the ages.
Even before the selfie pandemic, self-portraiture had become a key genre with many artists – including the likes of Gilbert & George and Tracey Emin –specialising in it. This lecture by James Hall explains the historical shift from rarity to ubiquity.
