Some history on portraits from photos
Custom Oil painting
For centuries, artists have been creating portraits of individuals. Some of the earliest portraits were of queens, kings, and other high society individuals. If they were still living, then they would pose to the artist who painted their portraits. As photos were introduced at the beginning of the 20th century, a portrait from photos became a possibility. Instead of the individual posing for dozens of hours to have an oil painting done, an artist could use the person’s photo to create an oil painting portrait. Throughout the 20th century artists have been doing portraits from photos of world leaders, and other high-class people. In the last few decades it has become a common practice for the middle-class to commission portraits from photos of children, beloved ones, whole families or even pets.
