Portraits of the Past




May 4, 2009

Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Use this image collection with the MIA's "Portrait of George Washington" Teaching the Arts feature.

18th century painters kept collections of pictures by other artists to get ideas for their own work. You can start your own collection of portrait samples using these images. Look through the sample portraits. What details would you borrow for a portrait of your friend? Your school principal? Today's president of the United States? Sharpen your pencils and try out your ideas.
