Art & Portraits
A portrait is a work of art that documents the likeness of a person or creature that’s alive or has been alive. In fine art, in particular, portraits are pieces of artwork, which can be photographs, painting, sculptures, or any other portraiture of a human being, often with the face of the person as the central theme.
The subject of a portrait art can be an individual or a group, such as a team or family. The most common types of portrait works of art include self-portraits (portraits of the artists by the artists), group portraits, and the classic portrait of a single person.
They usually depict the subject either full-body, half-length, or head & shoulders (aka passport portraits). And they can be figurative, abstract, or realistic.
