Description

Be it in portraits and narratives scenes, in allegories and paintings of everyday life, it is often the faces shown that communicate most directly in a picture, with expressions that reveal drama or character. The manner in which faces are painted show in striking ways the artistic aims and preoccupations of those who painted them. A Closer Look: Faces examines such issues as the changing faces, differing ideals of beauty, the ways in which portrait painters have captured a likeness and convey character, and how we read these facial expressions.
