Faces of Impressionism explores the character and development of the portrait in French painting and sculpture from the late 1850s until the first years of the 20th century. The major figures of Impressionist portraiture­­—Caillebotte, Cézanne, Degas, Monet and Renoir—will be represented in depth. Among the approximately 70 masterworks on loan will be Cézanne’s Portrait of Gustave Geffroy and Woman with a Coffee Pot; Degas’s Self-Portrait with Evariste de Valernes and L’Absinthe; and Renoir’s Portrait of Claude Monet and Yvonne and Christine Lerolle at the Piano.
