about this item

The genre of portraiture takes us back to the origins of artistic representation. Over the course of the centuries, it has developed on different surfaces, only truly finding its footing as a standalone genre during the Renaissance. Art of courts, of the bourgeoisie, or equally of the common people, the portrait has a strong link with death and the endurance of beings through their image. Almost every artist has tried their hand at the portrait, including some of the most famous in history; we can count Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Dürer, Van Eyck, Van Dyck, Velázquez, Nattier, Vigée-Lebrun, David, and even Picasso, Soutine, and Modigliani among them
