Other works in the exhibition include a 1981 Arneson bronze and ceramic self-portrait, Jack Beal's large oil study for his MTA mural at Times Square, Jose Bedia?s "El otro llado," a five-part painting from 1992, and Joan Brown?s "Smoker," a cardboard cutout from 1973. Chagoya will be represented by "Double Agent," one of his large charcoal drawings from 1989, Saul by a study for his 1992 portrait of Jeffrey Dahmer, and DeForest  by  a large-scale canvas from 1978.
