HOW TO DRAW A PORTRAIT

In the exhibition, For America: Paintings from the National Academy of Design, artists are represented by both portraits and landscapes they created. A portrait is an artistic representation of a person, such as a drawing, photograph, or sculpture. Portraiture is one of the most popular genres for artists.
