Tour of the National Portrait Gallery’s Hand-cut Silhouette Collection, with Robyn Asleson, Curator
Silhouettes—cut paper profiles—were a hugely popular and democratic form of portraiture in the 19th century, offering virtually instantaneous likenesses of everyone from presidents to those who were enslaved. Robyn will lead us on a tour of the Portrait Gallery’s extensive collection of silhouettes, such as those by Auguste Edouart, who captured the likenesses of such notable figures as John Quincy Adams and Lydia Maria Child, as well as the bold new reimaginings of silhouettes by contemporary artists.
