Portraiture was a way to signify wealth, status and power, as well as a means of creating family records or mementos to pass down generations. Portraits capture the physical likeness of the sitter, as well as impressions of their character and personality; their fashion, accessories, and accompanying objects included in the scene further reinforce the sitter’s life story.
Includes works by George Romney, Anthonie Palamedesz, Otto Brandt, and many others. Showing alongside this exhibition is a selection of fine antiques and objet d’art.
Open Tuesday-Saturday 10am to 5pm or by appointment. The first building on the south end of the Granville Street Bridge at the beginning of South Granville’s Gallery Row, 2117 Granville Street, phone 604-736-8825 www.langmann.com. (Wheelchair accessible).
