Favorite Portraiture Quotes

1. "When I'm painting and drawing I only do people. Acting is obviously portraiture - and writing is as well."
Author: Antony Sher
2. "..the brave picture we have of humans as rational beings is utterly misleading, a kind of photograph of our surface composure and thus unreflective of-- and unattuned to-- the seismic emotional and psychic reality underneath, our true reality... The arts put onto the page or the stage or the canvas or the screen a special portraiture that does justice to our depths."
Author: Arnold Weinstein
3. "Portraiture keeps me humble. It's simple and straightforward. There is nothing more interesting I can make up than the figure sitting right in front of me."
Author: Jemima Kirke
4. "An artist who painted a face was now 'playing with the idea of portraiture,' or 'exploring push-pull aesthetics,' or toying with contradictions like 'menacing-slash-playful,' but he or she was never, ever, just painting a face."
Author: Steve Martin
5. "In terms of the class structure that you see so much in European portraiture, I don't think one feels that in America in the 21st century. But we have these other kinds of social structures now, like celebrity, who establish new hierarchies."
Author: Will Cotton

Today's Quote

Sois-en sûre, Caesonia. Sans elle, j'eusse été un homme satisfait. Grâce à elle, j'ai conquis la divine clairvoyance du solitaire. (Il s'exalte de plus en plus, étranglant peu à peu Caesonia qui se laisse aller sans résistance, les mains un peu offertes en avant. Il lui parle, penché sur son oreille.) Je vis, je tue, j'exerce le pouvoir délirant du destructeur, auprès de quoi celui du créateur paraît une singerie. C'est cela, être heureux. C'est cela le bonheur, cette insupportable déli-vrance, cet universel mépris, le sang, la haine autour de moi, cet isolement non pareil de l'homme qui tient toute sa vie sous son regard, la joie démesurée de l'assassin impuni, cet-te logique implacable qui broie des vies humaines (il rit), qui te broie, Caesonia, pour parfaire enfin la solitude éternelle que je désire."
Author: Albert Camus
