Sophisicated Portraits

Sophisicated Portraits

Writing about painting is a bit like writing about architecture. You have to absorb what the object is all about, in order to understand it. You have to know about who created it, why they created it, and who they created it for. Buildings are also much like portraits. They tell the story of a thing at a point in time, and they change with age. Our understandings of them change with age too. But like a fine architect, a fine artist’s reputation will endure, and this makes Old Master art all the more interesting.

On the website at the moment are three pieces of art (in two listings) that relate to two important artists of the early modern period.

Amy Lugten

My uncle, a member of the Royal Academy
of Arts, encouraged me from an early age to be
fascinated in art, antiques and design
My love of antiques is about history,
makers and their evolution over the ages.
I hope you will enjoy exploring our website.
