A portrait is a study of a subject, an opportunity to capture its spirit.
A photograph can capture the likeness of a person, like a mirror;
but a painted portrait is not only a mirror of physical likeness, it is also a mirror of the soul.
A portrait should tell you more about the subject than a photograph ever could.
