Portrait to order

Portrait to order

 

Since ancient time people are interested in own personalities. Portraits from the depths of time bring us images of the ordinary and outstanding people. We, contemporaries, have more opportunities to preserve our images for the descendants and friends. This is facilitated by the incredible development of photography. Still the image of the world created by the fine arts brings unfathomable fullness and integrity. Our homes are decorated with picturesque landscapes and still lives but seldom with portraits. For they require a special attitude and cannot be accidental. Most of them are made to order. Besides similarity of appearance, the portrait painter aspires to convey creatively most inherent model’s character traits to reveal the inner world by means of painting, drawing or sculpture.

 

Portrait as a genre appeared a few thousand years ago in ancient art and gained its golden age during the Renaissance when famous artists of that time such as Botticelli, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and others applied themselves to the portrait art.

 

Depending on the purpose and form the portraits are subdivided into the easel painting (paintings, busts, graphic works) and the monumental ones (wall paintings, mosaics, sculptural monuments), ceremonial portraits and intimate ones. In the formal portraits, the model in general is depicted in full height, in the ceremonial attire at the architectural or landscape background. In the intimate portraits, face looks more chambers, usually with the interior in the background. By the number of characters, the portraits can be individual, double and group ones. Separately standing are companion portraits, they are often ordered by spouses. Then the models are depicted in two different paintings but both compositions are combined by the common conception, color, background. Portraits can be head, chest-length, half-length, knee-length and full-length and the angles are full face, profile or three-quarter ones.

 

Among popular there are sculptural portraits in bronze, marble, limestone, other natural materials, even in semi-precious stones. They are performed as cameos (the head and neck model’s image), busts and statues. The mood of your art image depends on what kind of background, pose and outfit you choose. In some cases, a nude portrait would look very romantic.

 

Each portrait type has its own advantages. Turning to the masters of the portrait art studio you can be sure to get the desired result. Our "Raritet-Art" gallery artists work upon your approved sketches. Only you choose whether to pose for the artist or simply give him your best photos.
