Artists of Famous Portrait Paintings
What makes a portrait a famous painting?
Many of the famous portrait paintings from well known contemporary artists were of celebrities or wealthy patrons of a fine art gallery representing the artist. There are two major factors to make a portrait painting famous:
- The portrait is of celebrity, athlete, president, notable group of people, etc.
- The artist is somehow famous or noteworthy such as Vincent Van Gogh
Interestingly, painters do not need to produce good art in order to be famous. Consider the opposite: A technically great painting by an unknown artist of a person not well known probably will never be famous. A portrait can be famous as long as it meets the above criteria in one of these mediums:
- Oil Paint
- Mixed Media Collages
