Men's portraits 19th century (first half 1800-1850)

The characteristic features of male portraits in the painting of the first half of the 19th century may vary depending on the artistic direction and the individual approach of the artists. However, there are certain general trends that can be highlighted:

  • 1. Romantic aesthetics: At this time, Romanticism was the predominant artistic direction, and portraits reflected the splendor and sensuality of this era. Male portraits often depicted artistic and chivalrous figures or literary heroes.
  • 2. Identification of social status: Male portraits often reflected the social and political position of the model. High status was displayed through outfits and accessories, such as military uniforms, uniforms of members of the aristocracy or ornate costumes.
  • 3. The ideal of masculinity: Men in portraits were often depicted with strong features, a masculine expression and an emphatic manner. Confidence, strength and energy were the key features that the artists sought to convey.
  • 4. Modesty and seriousness: Despite the appeal to the aesthetics of romanticism, male portraits were often distinguished by modesty and seriousness. The artists sought to convey the inner world and individuality of the model, and not just her appearance.
  • 5. Lack of emotional expression: In general, male portraits of the 19th century were characterized by a relative restraint of emotions. The artists sought to convey the intellectual and inner essence of the model, as well as its society and status.

These are just some common features of male portraits of the first half of the 19th century. Of course, each artist had his own unique style and approach to depicting men, so variations in style and subject matter were common.

In the portraits of the early 19th century there are realistic images of the military and men of other professions. They are portrayed without exaggeration, as they are in the daily situation. Also almost sketch works appear, as "Study of an Arab" Charles Bargue, in which the face of the hero is almost invisible, the artists allow themselves to depart from the traditional canons. And the background for the portrait is now not only the interior, but the nature too.
