For young artists, a self-portrait can act as a statement of mastery. The MFA’s Art of Americas Wing houses a number of striking self-portraits by Bostonians in their 20s. John Greenwood and Polly Thayer hold paintbrushes; Washington Allston and Ellen Day Hale present themselves as transformed by European study and travel. Join Barbara Martin, Alfond Curator of Education Emerita, to consider these intriguing presentations of the self.
