When Artists Paint Artists
From Tracy Emin to Kehinde Wiley
Entertainment 11 Nov 2018

An artist’s self-portrait is one thing, but an artist’s portrait of an another artist is often, next level.
The Staley Wise gallery in New York is hosting a group show called Portraits of Artists, which runs until December 1.

There are also portraits of Cindy Sherman, David Hockney, Jasper Johns and Ai Weiwei. Artist portraits will forever change the viewer, but also, the artists.
As Molly Moore, a pop artist in L.A., says: “I see myself through others eyes and I am made anew.”
