Multiple Selves: Portraits in Print from Rembrandt to Rivera examines how the artist views him or herself as the subject of a work of art. The installation presents work drawn exclusively from the DMA's collection and features artists such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Diego Rivera, and Piet Mondrian. The introduction of photography in the mid-1880s, the evolution of art toward abstraction in the 20th century, and new scientific discoveries and disciplines—such as psychology—encouraged artists to create portraits that differed from lifelike interpretations. The works on view span from the 17th century through the 20th century and highlight this artistic change.
