In what way?

I like Alice Neel's paintings.

It's very unorginal but pretty much everything by Sargent.
>>
Expressionist art has produced many fine portraits. It has the ability to really bring home the angst many people feel.

I find myself drawn to outsiders for portrait art, Artaud was an insane theater guy first and foremost, but his portraits are pretty cool too.

EW!

I think I like the guy, probably

Funnily enough that drawing looks like three different guys I know.

That bald + beard look is ubiquitous.

This one, bar none... His or her name seems to have been lost in the sands of time, however.

What a weird portrait of Mary
It has aspects of tridimensionality and construction, semi accurate folds but still a flat composition. Do you know from where and when it comes fron?

"The hermits" by Schiele
Social outcasts in a harsh shitty world.
But they're still cool as fuck
Obviously this is a very superficial take on the painting and the literally me was like gang weed stuff

They look like a pair of try-hard hipster flambés.

This is the best portrait ever done. Prophetic, too.

>it has the ability to really bring home the angst many people feel
Translation: “people feel ugly on the inside, therefore they are drawn to art that depicts people who are ugly on the outside.”
It’s almost like the artist is playing a joke on them without realizing it. Like if someone told you to put a paper bag over your head because you’re so ugly, except they thought they were genuinely doing something good and you also thought it was genuinely good. But really it’s just because you’re both ugly.

Are you 12 and experiencing what you consider your first deep thought?

Because one of expressionist painting's key ideas is to distort the subject in order to evoke moods. For example, I find that this portrait is quite well done in its expression of the angst and misery the subject (a WWI veteran) is experiencing. It has nothing to do with ugliness.

You should read up on art a bit, you might end up enjoying it a little more and being less of a goober.

It’s a popular one but it’s till my favorite

I'm a pedophile so i really enjoy how this version of saint Philomena looks. She actually remind me a lot of the average kinda cute nsfw model I often see on twitter and send death threats, not that I hate them, I don't feel a whole lot, is for my anthropological studies mostly.

Curious to see how much the japanese values being shoehorned on our heads changed the aesthetic preferences here on the west, before all porn models looked like milfs in their 40's with cougar like faces and huge deformed breast but now I think a girl that looked like this would make mad cash sealing pictures naked, despite in the past it being a symbol of purity and childhood.

Saint Philomena is the patron of children, btw, hence her looks. I think they never really seen her alive, they found a corpse and starting worshiping it if I guess. Italians...

What do you define as portrait?

like it has to be of an actual person who sat for the painting?

actual person or fictitious?

I suck at this

Was it a deliberate choice to include the lamp because it echoes the roundness of his bald head?
