Before photography, painters were the ones who captured life and people through art. Some of the earliest portraits are believed to have been painted onto stone by ancient Egyptians as a way to immortalize their rulers and gods. As time went on artists began to paint every day people and even themselves which is called a self-portrait.
The photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz believed that portraiture painting would become obsolete throughout the beginning of the 20th century and that portraits would only be captured through photography.
