American Portrait Paintings

What a joy it is to capture the likeness of another human being. It has been said that the eyes are the window through which we glimpse the soul.That's my favorite thing to paint - souls!" - Ann Manry Kenyon

If you enjoy portraits, perhaps you are fascinated by looking into the eyes of the subjects, trying to envision the souls within. At one time, painted portraits were the only means of capturing a person's likeness. Even today, despite all our advanced photographic technology, portraiture remains one of the most popular types of American painting.
