An equal number of male and female artists define MTI’s popular exhibit of high-quality reproductions. This interesting collection of self-portraits by Leonardo Da Vinci, Gustave Courbet, Mary Cassatt, Vincent van Gogh, Paula Modersohn Becker, Gwen John, Juan Gris, Frida Kahlo, Francis Bacon, Anna Belle Lee Washington, Chuck Close and Becki Sanders successfully toured to schools during the 2014-15 program year and will continue to do so in 2015-16. Products of different cultures and time periods ranging from 1452 to the present, these artists all became their own models – leaving the world with “selfies” that can be studied, discussed and experienced from a number of intriguing vantage points.
“A highlight from the Proprium unit of study is that students are exposed to different artists and artistic styles.”
- Nicola Levine, Amelia Earhart Elementary School of International Studies
