20th Century Portraiture

25th April - 14th August 2017 Perth Museum and Art Gallery

The invention of photography in the nineteenth century challenged the work of portrait artists. With the market for portraits declining, 20th century artists moved away from traditional portraiture and experimented with new techniques and styles. Mood and expression came to define their works, rather than simply capturing a sitter’s likeness. See striking examples of this fascinating period from our Permanent Collection, including Senorita by Robert Sivell.
