Picturing Identities: 16th to 20th Century Portraits

1 - 15 December 2017

Brun Fine Art is proud to present Picturing Identities, an exhibition of over thirty portraits on view this December on the occasion of the first London Art Week Winter Edition. The selling exhibition, presented on the two newly renovated floors of the gallery and accompanied by a catalogue, centres on the theme of portraiture across time, mediums, and subjects. The museum-quality paintings, drawings, and sculptures on display aim to trace the evolution of this artistic practice from the early 16th to the late 20th century. The title of the exhibition aims to foreground the importance of the portraits’ introspective and emotional potential, rather than the subjects’ social status. Indeed, the subjects of these artworks range from members of important aristocratic families to humble servants, from clergymen to scientific personalities, as well as courtiers and comedians, thus providing an extensive overview of the aesthetic possibilities afforded by the art of portraiture.
