Walter Sickert said, in 1910, that portraits were of two kinds: “pictures painted by artists as servants of their customers” and “pictures painted by artists who are masters of their customers.”  Comparing the academic portraits of Ingres with those of Cezanne exemplifies this change in portraiture. This course, ranging from artists such as John Singer Sargent, through Picasso and Matisse to the present day, will test Sickert’s theory of portraiture.
