Wednesday 1 November, 7.00pm to 8.00pm
Everyone is familiar with the idea of a portrait, but the concept becomes elusive when you attempt to define it. Is it about a recognisable likeness of a person or psychological penetration? Is a portrait ultimately revealing or diversionary? Does it say as much about the artist as the sitter? This lecture questions the meaning of portraiture and its role in art history, as it relates to work of Lucian Freud.Presented by Dr Yvonne Scott, Associate Professor, History of Art, Director of TRIARC, at Trinity College Dublin.
