Anne Pesce, Autoportrait ”Automne, les yeux fermés”, 1993. Huile sur toile. Collection les Abattoirs, Musée - Frac Occitanie Toulouse © Anne Pesce. Crédit photo. : Jean-Luc Auriol et Alain Gineste

The portrait travels through history, from the first representations of hunters in prehistoric times to the profile photos that flood social networks today. In this contemporary evocation that brings together portraits and self-portraits in paintings, sculpture and photographs, it is the variety of representations that strikes, with the same attention given to faces and looks, as an invitation to meet the other.
