In preparation for ''Thomas Sully: Painted Performance'', join the Museum''s new Marie and Hugh Halff Curator of American Art Dr. William Keyse Rudolph to learn about the development of American portraiture in 17th and 18th Century America.  Thomas Sully built on a rich tradition of likenesses, created by a diverse, international team of artists.  Discover nearly two centuries of American portraiture, from unknown itinerant artists to the dazzling works of John Singleton Copley, the high-living Gilbert Stuart and the civic minded Peale Family--many of whom are represented in the Museum''''s American collections.
