Join museum educator Wendy Dodek for this in-depth 15-minute talk in the galleries on Polly Thayer’s Self Portrait: The Algerian Tunic (1927). On view in “Women Take the Floor,” Thayer’s self-portrait exemplifies a polished artistic technique, but many modern elements hide behind the genteel surface.


Discover the stories, techniques, and history behind the art in this and upcoming Spotlight Talks and other Talks in the Galleries.
