What "depicts" a human being? It is a difficult question to answer, but portrait painting makes various attempts to answer the question of what needs to be done, when setting out to portray a human being. Can a human "be caught" in a single expression, retained in colours and shapes, or is it a completely impossible undertaking? What happens when various portraits are put together to form a group portrait?
