▫️▫️FACES ▫️LIFE ▫️TRUTH ▫️▫️ • The 'selfie' wasn't born in the 21st Century or the capturing of #unique images of #friends , loved ones, #lovers and anything in-between. . It wasn't because of the advent of the cell-phone, cameras and social media - long before this was art as 'social media' before disruptive technologies dominated our lives. . For centuries artists have created images of themselves or those around them - selfies, portraits or whatever, they leave a lasting legacy and deep imprint of the individuals captured for all time. • James Tissot, "Captain Frederick Gustavus Burnaby", 1870 ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ @Regrann @cycoart comfortable enough in a room of civilized softness. • #jamestissot #painting smoking haughty #inspiration #selfie #portrait #self -portrait #selfportrait #socialmedia #socialrecord #historicalreference #artislife #faceslifetruth
