Jimmy Wright at The Met

JimmyWrightMet.jpgJimmy Wright has several works in public collections—The Center for Book and Paper Arts, Chicago Columbia College; Yaser Art Center, in Paducah, Ky.; and the St. Paul Art Center, in Minnesota, to name a few—so it’s no surprise that one of his self portraits resides in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This particular pastel, Portrait of the Artist (pictured), however, is also on display in The Met’s current exhibition, The Lens and the Mirror: Self Portraits from the Collection, 1957-2001. See the exhibition through Nov. 15, 2009, in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing, Modern and Contemporary Art. Congratulations to the artist!
