PORTRAITS OF PEOPLE

ALL PIECE SETS ARRIVE FRAMED WITH FREE SHIPPING.
Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans that are alive or have been alive. A posthumous portrait (a portrait rendered after the death of the subject) can be achieved by either copying another portrait or following instructions of the person who commissions the work. Usually, a portrait records the subject's features. A portrait of the art historian Robert Rosenblum (1927-2006) by Kathleen Gilje captures the sitter's face and celebrates his outstanding Ingres scholarship through this appropropriation of Ingres' portrait of the Comte de Pastoret (1791-1857). Ingres' portrait was completed in 1826 (Art Institute of Chicago). Gilje's portrait was completed in 2006, several months before Rosenblum's death in December. Robert Rosenblum collaborated on the choice of appropriation.
