Harvard Art Museums and its digital publication Index have continued their look-alike
project
, which pairs works in the museums’ collections with doppelganger staff members. Staffers included in a recent round of look-alikes include (left to right) Index staff writer Jenny Magee Stenger, who resembles Jean Dubuffet’s “Woman With Uncombed Hair” (1954); Allison Jackson, frame conservator at the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, who resembles Pablo Picasso’s “Woman With a Chignon” (1901); and Daron Manoogian, director of communications, who has taken on Vincent van Gogh’s 1888 painting “Self-Portrait Dedicated to Paul Gauguin.” We’d say that last one is a stretch, but at least he’s accessorized right.
