Women in Art

Date

Time

A selection of portraits of South African women painted by South African female artists.
Portraits are artistic representations of people in which the face and expressions are predominant. Portraiture is a very old art form going back at least to ancient Egypt. Before the invention of photography, a painted, drawn or sculptured portrait was the only way to record the appearance of someone. These contemporary works explore both realism and expressionism.
