In all his works, Harvey Dunn desired to go beyond the mere depiction of physical likeness, stating in his credo: “The spirit is the only thing that is true about anything. So the expression of this spirit—that is the main thing.” This exhibition celebrates Dunn’s desire to fully and deeply render truths about humanity. His instruction to students is a fitting lesson: “Feel your picture, get into it, be the character you are painting. Feel his joys, his sorrows, think him, put yourself in his shoes.”
