Internationally renowned for her conceptual photography, films,
and video installations, the exiled Iranian-American artist Shirin Neshat challenges the divide between the artist and social critic. Informed by her experiences, Neshat's work oscillates between the personal and universal, transcending
preconceptions of culture, nationality, ethnicity and gender. read more

Eleonora of Toledo and Her Son, c. 1545/1550
“I have always loved Eleonora of Toledo and Her Son (Bronzino and Workshop) because she epitomizes a strong female image at a time when women were routinely kept backstage. She wears her jewels and that amazing dress effortlessly, quietly projecting her status. She keeps her son close at her side, yet another power statement of her time. And if you look very closely, you can see a bit of grime under her fingernails, which completely humanizes her for me. I remember walking through the National Gallery one afternoon and literally bumping into another portrait of Eleonora. She had aged a few years, but she was still my friend from the DIA!”
Annmarie Erickson, Executive Vice President, Planning and Administration
