Autumn Portrait Competition

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. 

Entries were judged on these criteria:

  • Likeness- Does your artwork look like you?
  • Use of space- Does your artwork make an impact by using the whole paper space?
  • Character and mood- Does your artwork show your personality? This could be through the use of pattern, colour or expression.
