Portraits provide some of the most iconic images from Tudor England. From life-size images of monarchs to representations of ‘middling’ professionals, portraits reveal a huge amount about the people and the culture. This course will explore the ways that portraits were made and used across different sectors of society. We’ll look at the importance of image control and visual propaganda, the solutions that artists and patrons suggested for problems of representation, and we will discuss the ways that techniques and materials can contribute their own layers of meaning to the image.
