As it is all over the world in Cambridge, portrait artists’ works are one of the most important genres of art. It exerts a powerful magic over the viewer as it is a permanent record of what the artist felt and saw at that particular moment. Not only does a portrait reveal the physical aspects of the subject, it also provides amazing psychological insights. It also describes the period, context, mood, social status, and identity of the person. Over the centuries, portrait art has undergone dramatic changes. They have been used to show the power, virtue, beauty, economic wealth and position, political importance and more. Some portrait painters sought to flatter their subjects by making them look younger and more attractive while others stayed true to their art and painted what they saw and felt.
Rob Hefferan, the leading portrait artist in Cambridge creates paintings that depict the essential quality of the sitter. Many portrait artists were employed and patronised by royal families in the centuries gone by. These portraits established permanent records of people in the absence of the modern art of photography. There were different types of portraits such as conversation pieces, portraits in the grand manner, miniatures, or even cartoons and caricatures. Many artists such as Picasso took the form into unexplored territories of abstract art, while some artists were commissioned to work on post-mortem portraits in the Victorian era.
