Pittsburgh's portraitists

Three of the greatest American portraitists were born right here in Pittsburgh. This is a little known, and hardly celebrated fact, except in the case of Andy Warhol thanks to the Andy Warhol Museum, one of just a handful of museums in the United States dedicated to an individual artist.

Here are the big three Pittsburghers' self-portraits:

Andy Warhol

Mary Cassatt

Philip Pearlstein
