Depicting the human form has been a primary focus of artists since the beginning of recorded engagement. Looking at a portrait or figure painting has usually been thought to be an isolated occasion with a finite meaning. This exhibition of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture from the Haggerty’s permanent collection explores the potential of these objects to evince multiple meanings based on context and proximity to other works.


This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Haggerty and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
