Abstract
Care and craft went into the painting of portraits in the 18th century. The most accomplished portraits contained hints of the sitter's character - the way he held his hands, gazed through the painting, what he held, or little symbols contained in the scene. Just like poetry, the painting could exalt the subject, and provide a lasting legacy to his or her character.
