the haven guessing painting was already in the antiquity with the Egyptians well trained, as numerous portraits of the deceased prove. With the Greeks it arrived only in the alexandrinischen time at the highest completion. At the masterful organization arrived in the Greek art also ideal haven advice. Those are freely invented character types, production after the ideal nature of the individual concerned and the artist also not personally admit (statues and heads of the Homer, Äsop etc.). With Lysipp and its brother Lysistratos, which casted first Gesichtsmasken after the life, penetrated the realistic view into the haven guessing art. The Romans have thereupon this haven advice trained in virtuoser way (Augustusstatue of the Vatikani museum, heads of the Caracalla, Hadrian).

The painters followed only later. In the bloom time to the Italian painting it succeeded to it then, haven-guesses/advises the meaning of a character picture to give, in which the whole nature of the representing arrives at the expression.

Raffael and Tizian lead herein, among the Dutchmen Rubens, van Dyck, particularly fray to neck and rem Brandt, from the Spanish school Velázquez. The latter masters know to deepen also by koloristische tendency and important background the description.

More simply, but those of haven advice of a Dürer and a getting leg are uncommonly characteristic.

Since that 17. Century stepped the Porträtbildnerei so much into the foreground that no painter extracted itself of importance from the same. From preferential haven guessing painters of the more recent time the Frenchmen David , Gérard , Ingres , Cabanel , Bonnat , Carolus Duran , the German winter owners , are awake, Magnus, Hensel, G. Judge, Angeli, Lenbach, the Englishmen Reynolds, Gainsborough, Millais, Herkomer, the Dutchmen Isaac Israëls, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Citroen, Sierk Schröder, fray to Koppelaar to call.
