Great selection of antique and 20th Century portraits, nudes and busts. Portraits show the profile or head and shoulders of a person and are often particularly liked due to the detail that can be provided in a more concentrated focus on the sitter.
Our selecton of Nudes shows female and male subjects, sometimes in profile, othertimes full frontal or perhaps just from the torso and up.
Busts are similar in that they show the head part of a person and have been popular for Centuries. They are often carved in marble or cast in bronze. Both materials are very hardy and this is why so many have lasted through the ages. Bronze is a wonderful metal as, like copper, over time it gains a deeper patina and colour. You do find marble busts that were created for display outside, but many were intended for interior decoration.
They are popular gifts for both Men and Women becuase the subject matters are often classical and give us a window into the past.
