What is a portrait? Is there an absolute definition of portraiture or a binding template of how to represent a person in an artwork? Can a home be a portrait of its resident? Come explore the possibilities of representation in the personal home and museum of Israeli artist Ilana Goor. In the past, the portrait was one of the most prestigious genres of visual art; however, 19th-century developments in photography were thought to end its glory. But the portrait survived in the plastic arts and has many varied faces: prototype, minimalistic, realistic, abstract, etc. There is almost no artist who hasn’t engaged with the portrait, self-portraits or portraits of others, which also convey something of the artist. Each portrait has its own story, a universe in and of itself. The portrait is treated with various materials and mediums (sculpture, painting, sketching, photography, installations, and video). Technological developments have broadened the possibilities and deepened the portrait. “Discovering Portraiture” shall shed light on this intriguing genre, through different works in the museum collection.

The image of the woman in art has historically reflected the male gaze, either of the artist or the viewer for which the work was intended. The woman was usually presented as a mother, a seducer, or a muse.
