Depicting the Invisible, the Hunter’s newest Collection Focus exhibition, presents the lasting impact of wartime trauma. The title of this exhibition is borrowed from artist Susan J. Barron’s series, Depicting the Invisible: A Portrait Series of Veterans Suffering from PTSD. Two of Barron’s large-scale, black-and-white portraits anchor the gallery, alongside historic works from the Hunter’s collection by artists Leonard Baskin, Miriam Beerman, Leon Golub, and Jeffrey Wolin. Together, these works represent somber images that respond to the brutality of war and the spirit of human survival.
