The Obama portraits by Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald were just two of several prized artworks acquired by the National Portrait Gallery during its 50th anniversary. As the Portrait Gallery turns the corner on a new decade of its legacy, the museum will present an exhibition of historic and contemporary works newly acquired for its growing collection. Subjects will include Celia Cruz, Edwin Hubble, Helen Keller, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Louie Pérez, Maurice Sendak, George Walker and Oprah Winfrey. The exhibition will present work by artists including Imogen Cunningham, Harry Gamboa Jr., Brigitte Lacombe, Charles Willson Peale, Shahzia Sikander and Andy Warhol. “Recent Acquisitions” is co-curated by the National Portrait Gallery’s team of curators and historians.
