Turning Points in Portraiture


The history of portraiture is the history of art. It is man’s artistic connection to eternity!

Artists throughout the ages have chosen the human figure as their paramount subject, thus proclaiming, over and over again, the conviction that man is the measure of all things.

Classic portraiture dates from early Egyptian times where art began to play a continuing role in the story of mankind. During its long historical course, the portrait continues to reflect each era’s social temperament, as well as its political, religious and artistic convictions.
