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.
