Portraits are effective and compelling when they inform us something concerning the person. An excellent portrait is not only a visual representation of a person; it may also reveal something in regards to the essence of the person. What the portrait reveals may possibly not be completely obvious - sometimes it could be cleverly implied by way of a certain expression or pose, an included object, or the artist's use of color. Sometimes the individual in the portrait can become iconic, representing a wider group of folks from a particular period over time, who share something in common.
