“Having a portrait painted never isn’t awkward. By its very nature, it

“Having a portrait painted never isn’t awkward. By its very nature, it creates a poseur and a voyeur whisking up a rendering that will only be voyeured by other voyeurs. That’s the point. You can dismiss portraiture as vanity. Easily. But if art is vanity, then what the fuck is Instagram?” Annabel Rivkin and Luciana Bellini for #TatlerUK.

On that note, stop with this Instagramming business; get thee to a portraitist; & have for thyself a portrait commissioned!
