Portraiture

12th Annual ARC Salon

Portraiture

ARC is proud to present the finalists and winners of Portraiture in the 12th International ARC Salon. This represents 165 entries out of the 618 works entered into this category. This important genre first thrived 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. Since then it has always served as more then just a visual record and has been used to demonstrate power, importance, virtue, beauty, wealth or taste; but most importantly, portraits are intended to capture the soul of the sitter. We are excited to add this important historical genre to the ARC Salon.
