Are portrait paintings in or out in today’s world of art? We say portraits are IN! Historically, [according to Wikipedia] portrait paintings have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful.

Over time, however, it became more common for middle-class patrons to commission portraits of their families and colleagues. Today, portrait paintings are still commissioned by governments, corporations, groups, clubs, and individuals.

In addition to painting, portraits can also be made in other media such as etchinglithographyphotography, video and digital media. Is it weird to hang a portrait of yourself in your own home? Maybe. Is it weird to hang a portrait of a stranger in your home? Not at all. Again according to Wikipedia, a well-executed portrait is expected to show the inner essence of the subject (from the artist’s point of view) or a flattering representation, not just a literal likeness.
