THE PORTRAIT IN ART

A portrait is much more than a picture of what someone looks like. A portrait can document the history of a whole fami- ly, or a single individual’s journey. It can be about an era of time, a culture, an event, or the experience of youth or age. It can tell stories, be self revealing or serve as a commentary of social values or political institutions.
