Alfred Wertheimer, artist interview
Description:
Warren Perry, co-curator of "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer" interviews Alfred Wertheimer. "Elvis at 21" is on tour; the exhibition is on view at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery from October 23, 2010 to January 23, 2010. Learn more and view selected photographs on the online exhibition: http://npg.si.edu/elvisat21 In 1956, 26-year old Alfred Wertheimer was asked to photograph a rising 21-year-old-star named Elvis Presley. When Presley walked on stage that year, he altered the beat of everyday life. The world changed. Wertheimer captured the singer's transit to superstardom and the cultural transformation he helped launch. "Elvis at 21" offers viewers an intimate look at the public and private life of one of the world's most famous figures, and documents classic American life—from the diners to the train stops—in 1956. "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer" was developed collaboratively by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and Govinda Gallery, and is sponsored nationally by The History Channel

Lincoln Schatz, artist interview
Description:
Lincoln Schatz's generative portraits of nineteen leading American innovators, known collectively as "Esquire's Portrait of the Twenty-First Century," were created in 2008 on commission from the magazine. The portraits are on view at the National Portrait Gallery, as part of the "Americans Now" exhibition, August 20, 2010 -- July 10, 2011. Each of theses sitters—representing leadership in the realms of business, medicine, science, technology, and the arts—sat for his or her portrait for one hour in the artist's ten-by-ten-foot "Cube," during which time they participated in activities of personal interest. The Cube is embedded with twenty-four cameras, each of which recorded the sitter from a different angle. The ever-changing "generative portrait" that results consists for the footage from each camera played back for different durations and in different sequences, creating a representation that is analogous to a personal encounter with these individuals.

Video Title:
Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Interview
Description:
Justice Sonia Sotomayor was interviewed by Jan Smith, for the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. Justice Kagan is depicted in the "The Four Justices" painting by artist Nelson Shanks, along with Justices Sandra Day O'Connor, Elena Kagan, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On October 28, 2013, the National Portrait Gallery celebrated the arrival of Nelson Shanks’s "The Four Justices," a tribute to the four female justices who have served on the U.S. Supreme Court. The work is monumental; it measures approximately seven feet by five-and-a-half feet (in its custom-made frame it is almost nine-and-a-half feet by eight feet) and holds the west wall of the National Historic Landmark Building’s second-floor rotunda. Of the work, NPG Chief Curator Brandon Fortune noted, “The National Portrait Gallery is honored to have such an ambitious group portrait on loan to the museum.” The work is based on sittings the justices had with Shanks; the two senior justices are seated and the recent appointees standing. Although the logistics of bringing three active and one retired justice into his studio was challenging, Shanks prefers to draw from life, which he feels brings each sitter’s distinct presence into his work. “If you can imagine a painting—no matter how facile—that doesn’t show character, something is missing,” Shanks noted in an interview with NPG. “Representation of character is really what counts to me.” Only men had sat on the bench of the Supreme Court until President Ronald Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. After O’Connor, the next woman to receive an appointment was Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a nominee of President Bill Clinton in 1993. President Barack Obama appointed Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Ginsburg, Sotomayor, and Kagan are still on the bench; O’Connor retired in 2006. Shanks’s oil on canvas painting is on loan to the National Portrait Gallery from Ian and Annette Cumming; they have also loaned their portrait of mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves by Shanks to NPG. Shanks is also responsible for two presidential portraits in the Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection: one of President Reagan created in 1989, and one of President Clinton painted in 2005.
