Remember Me

Remember Me is a fascinating collection of portraits from across the world. This exhibition looks at how people saw themselves in art. Also, it is about how we all want to be remembered. We do it nowadays all the time with selfies. Around the year 1500, the trend of portraiture began and continues until this day. A portrait was a great expense and the model was of course keen that the world looked at them in a positive light. It took meticulous planning and we are still looking at the results even now. Here you can see masterpieces from across the globe that illustrate the meaning of this exhibition. Read more about Remember Me here.
