Transcript of Portraiture

What is a portrait?
A portrait is a painting, photo, or sculpture of a person (usually just the head and shoulders).
Portraits normally tell you something about the person, whether it be in the medium used, the body language of the person or an object in the picture.
Why have your portrait painted?
It showed you were wealthy.
It showed you were someone of importance.
It immortalized your image forever.
It allowed you the luxury of 'dressing up' for an audience.
