Remember Me

Published October 1, 2021

From the late 1400's to the present day, people sitting for portraits were keen to be presented in the most favorable manner possible. All aspects of the composition – the facial expression, symbolism, pose, background and clothing – were carefully planned out. Where one portrait prioritized beauty, the other focused on exuding authority. "Remember Me" sheds light on how people wanted to be seen, in themes such as beauty, authority, ambition, love, family, knowledge and faith.

This exhibition runs from October 1, 2021 - January 16, 2022 at the Rijksmuseum, 1 Museumstraat, Amsterdam, 1071 XX, Netherlands.
