The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

Recent portrait-like paintings by contemporary British artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye are displayed adjacent to the historic Portrait Gallery at The Huntington. The installation of five of Yiadom-Boakye’s studies of fictional characters create a dialogue with The Huntington’s collection of highly formal 18th-century British portraits. Drawn from the world of found images and imagination, Yiadom-Boakye’s figures seem familiar but also mysterious.   Mondays – Sundays 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Except Tuesdays) $25 weekdays / $29 weekends
