Online Exhibitions / Exhibitions 1-10
The National Portrait Gallery is pleased to offer several online versions of past museum exhibitions. With the exception of "Picturing Business in America," created specifically for the web, each of these online presentations accompanied actual exhibitions and now serve to extend those shows indefinitely. Additional online exhibitions are also on view in the Current Exhibitions area of this web site.
"Picturing Business in America:|
Hedcuts in the Wall Street Journal."
First invented in 1979, The Wall Street Journal’s distinctive portrait heads, known as "hedcuts" or "dot-drawings" have attained the status of an American icon, readily identifiable with one of the country’s best-known business publications.
"Tête à Tête:|
Portraits by Henri Cartier-Bresson."
Exhibited October 29 through January 9, 2000.
Best known as the photographer who first captured the "decisive moment" on film in the 1930s, Henri Cartier-Bresson has been making portraits throughout his career as an artist and photojournalist.
