Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena presents “Portraiture from Ingres to Picasso,” a tour that explores the portraiture styles and techniques of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Pablo Picasso, and others, on Friday, Jan. 27, from 1 to 3 p.m.

A portion of the tour takes place in the exhibition “Picasso Ingres: Face to Face,” a partnership between the National Gallery in London and the Norton Simon Museum. The exhibition explores Picasso’s long-standing fascination with Ingres and the generative process that resulted from his confrontation with a celebrated work of art.

A museum educator will lead the tour that’s limited to 15 participants.

Attendance is on a first-come, first served basis. To join, sign up at the Information Desk when the Museum opens.
