A Treatise on Portrait Painting From Life: Also, Instructions for Painting Upon Photographs and Painting From Photographs (Classic Reprint)
The work is supplemented with a discourse upon Art which the Author hopes may be interesting not only to Artists, Art students, and patrons Of Art, but also to the general reader.
The position Of fine Portraiture in Art should rank high; the most celebrated painters have practised it, but the individuality and precision, which in the best are its characteristics and requisites, have precluded the possibility of there being many very successful.
The contemplation of great Characters of History in their Counterfeit Presentment, as of those of families whose images are endeared to the social circle, make this Art an essential in the World's interest.
