Introduction to Portraiture and Identity #googlearts

(0)
The outside world forms an idea of who a person is, and that identity may be very different from the person’s own sense of identity. The world may see a person as a symbol, a representation of an idea or event, which is only one part of that person’s identity. And identity changes over time as a person interacts with the world and with other individuals. Using portraits from the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery we will examine how portraits reflect aspects of a person’s identity. In this lesson, you will learn: ❖ How artists use portraiture to convey aspects of a subject’s individual, community, cultural, and national identity. ❖ Key components of a portrait and what one can learn about the subject through these components. ❖ The artistic choices that communicate an artist’s viewpoint and influence viewers’ understanding of the subject’s identity. ❖ Strategies for reading portraiture.
