“every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

  1. Charles says:

    Likewise, any silhouette cut with feeling is a portrait of the artist. The subject is merely the occasion, the person in front of the scissors today. They are not revealed by the silhouette, it is rather the silhouettist who reveals their own shade in black paper.
