Though the French painter produced hundreds of portraits in his lifetime, this genre of his practice is often sidelined in favor of his still lifes and landscapes. This exhibition addresses that gap, assembling about 60 of his portraits to examine his style and process, the range of his sitters, and this human aspect of his art.
