Portraiture Semi-Finalists

Sponsored by Academy of Realist Art Boston

This important genre first thrived 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. Since then, it has always served as more then just a visual record and has been used to demonstrate power, importance, virtue, beauty, wealth, or taste; but most importantly, portraits are intended to capture the soul of the sitter.
