  • 21.7.2015 - 1.11.2015, Listasafn Íslands

About 1.000 portraits are listed in the collection of the National Gallery of Iceland, by Icelandic and foreign artists, from former times to our days, representing nearly a fifth part of the museum's entire acquisition. The exhibition features selected portraits from the collection of the NGI, showing the breadth of this classic subject, which has engaged artists for no less than 26.000 years. During the exhibition the educational department of the NGI invites visitors to explore the portrait, historically and personally, in the company of chosen interlocutors.
