The June issue of ARTnews has "The New Portrait" on the cover. The subheading for the article by Pernilla Holmes reads: "Portraiture has become increasingly conceptual as it addresses not only personal identity but also issues of politics, social inequity, and our obsession with celebrity." You ought to read it if you thought you knew portraiture.
Speaking of portraits, Rhea Giffin sent me a link to this lovely video on YouTube entitled "Women in Art":
I think I recognized two paintings by women (Cassatt and Morisot) in the video, but otherwise, all men. All white women in the paintings. Maybe someone will do a "Women Portraits by Women Artists" video.
