Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944722482, Paperback)Western portraiture has always been the result of a nuanced and context-dependent interaction between the portrayal of physical likeness, specific portraiture traditions, and the presentation of the character or inner life of the sitter. In 2009, artist Félix de la Concha undertook fifty individual two-hour sessions with faculty, students, and staff at Dartmouth College as well as members of the local community of New Hampshire and Vermont, in which he painted a complete portrait in oils while interviewing the sitter on video on the theme of “conflict and reconciliation.” This catalogue chronicles the powerful results of this Hood Museum of Art commission and reproduces all of the portraits in the series.
Readers interested in contemporary art and the practice of art on college or university campuses will find this intriguing volume an essential addition to their libraries.
