April 4 – July 19, 2020
Located on the second floor


Remembered by Multiples: Cultural Icons continues this season’s celebration of iconic figures at Artis—Naples, featuring portraits of Margaret Atwood, Jascha Heifetz, Ernest Hemingway, Lena Horne, Marilyn Monroe, René Magritte and Andy Warhol, among others. Through works drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, as well as loaned photographs and prints, this exhibition reflects upon the lives and images of some of the 20th century’s most creative and influential figures.

Inherently reproducible in multiples and thus available to multitudes, photographs and printed images play a significant role not only in disseminating fame and shaping the public personae of celebrities, but also in continuous celebration of their achievements and posthumous commemoration of their lives. Moreover, they shed light on the dynamic relationship between artists and subjects, demonstrating that they simultaneously capture sitters’ appearances and mold the public perception of their iconic identities.

The exhibition presents photographs by Margaret Bourke-White, Lucien Clergue, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Leonard McCombe and Alfred Stieglitz from the permanent collection. Other highlights include loaned photographs by Duane Michals and William John Kennedy, and Barkley L. Hendricks’ prints.
