4 QUOTES WITH «PORTRAITURE»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word portraiture.
1
Will Cotton
In terms of the class structure that you see so much in European portraiture, I don't think one feels that in America in the 21st century. But we have these other kinds of social structures now, like celebrity, who establish new hierarchies.
2
Jemima Kirke
Portraiture keeps me humble. It's simple and straightforward. There is nothing more interesting I can make up than the figure sitting right in front of me.

Duane Michals
I still find doing portraits a terrific challenge, but even though I've done hundreds of them, I've never stopped questioning the very nature of portraiture because it deals exclusively with appearances. I've never believed people are what they look like and think it's impossible to really know what people are.
4
Antony Sher
When I'm painting and drawing I only do people. Acting is obviously portraiture - and writing is as well.
