A portrait of a person with powder white skin, blue hair, dramatic eye makeup. It is a sketch using pastels and deep gray paper. The subject's body is turned to the right, but the face is nearly facing the viewer and their eyes are cast down with a dignified appearance.

Join us for a guided tour that knits together works from PAFA's collection to explore gender, sexuality, and LGBTQ perspectives and communities. Led by Aylish O'Hare Barrows and Dennis Robinson, members of PAFA's Visitor Experience team, the tour will examine the work of a wide range of artists including Kehinde Wiley, Violet Oakley, and Cecilia Beaux, to name a few. Aylish and Dennis will highlight the queer networks and communities featured in our current exhibition, Women In Motion: 150 years of Women's Artistic Networks at PAFA.
