Portraits are irreplaceable because of the uniqueness of the relationship that they mediate between the artist, the sitter, and the viewer. In no artistic genre is the confrontation and interaction as intimate and absolute as in portraiture. Portraits can reflect past or current people, their gender, their emotions, their opinions, their social ambitions, their professional network, their tastes and preferences. They offer complete access to the intimate life of the artist and the model. By giving visual form to the exclusive and irreplaceable physiognomies of individuals or groups, portraiture is unequalled in its ability to highlight the present as well as to breathe life into the absent past.
