A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in formal portraiture, the subject is usually shown with a serious, subdued, or at least neutral expression. A portrait typically captures the person’s likeness, but can also be an abstract or stylized representation.
