Women portraits (the beginning of 19 centuries)

Antoine-Jean Gros (1771-1835) Christine Boyer

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.

Portraits of the 19th century, like the previous ones, are a kind of fashion magazine, thanks to which we can see the trends of that time, the characteristic features and novelties in clothes and hairstyles. A woman of the early 19th century, perhaps, looks simpler and more modest, but also elegant and refined. "Madame Perregaux" by Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Le Brun clearly demonstrates a new look of the polite society.
