Artists by Artists draws on the historical precedent of artists portraying their fellow artists in loose sketches to formal portraits.
From Van Gogh and Gauguin to Braque and Picasso and countless others; artists have created visual records of their colleagues. These works were normally kept in the personal collections of the artists and were seldom seen by the public.
The goal of Artists by Artists is to share with viewers a collection of such works by outstanding artists from around the state of Mississippi. These are rare glimpses into the unique relationships between artists.
Artists by Artists is on exhibit from September 22 - January 13, 2013 at the Mississippi Museum of Art.
