- Judith Leyster’s 17th-century “Self-Portrait,” one of the earliest self-portraits by an established woman artist, features the artist looking up from her easel mid-artwork, a meta glimpse at a painting within a painting.
- A new exhibition titled “Self Reflection” features 21 contemporary women artists whose subject matter is the self.
