CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Museum of Art is showing its entire collection of portrait miniatures for the first time in more than a half century.

The exhibit, called "Disembodied: Portrait Miniatures and Their Contemporary Relatives," opened this month and continues through Feb. 16.

The collection of about 170 portraits spans six centuries and includes a dozen new acquisitions.

The small works typically were done on vellum or slivers of ivory and were exchanged as tokens of affection.

Museum curator Cory Korkow says the miniatures bring people into a close relationship with the art subject.
