The Power of the Portrait
Portraiture has long functioned as a measure of status - a powerful way to say, here I am, I’m…who exactly?
Well, it can symbolize personal achievement, power, and prestige. Whether the statement is ‘loud’ or ‘quiet’ it can speak volumes.
We’ll look at artists past and present and paint a fabulous portrait (maybe even a self-portrait) - and fix our images for posterity!!
