An unusual collection of portraiture is on display starting today in Soho that knocks your head for a spin because of it’s loose theme that can stretch to embrace a century or two, a few continents, and about 30 schools of art.

Favorite pairing from last nights opening: Picasso next to Judith Supine. If he only knew.
