In previous centuries, prior to the invention of the camera, commissioning portraits was the prevalent way of memorialising loved ones and central figures. The encounter between painters and sitters resulted in the creation of the most beautiful paintings.
It is rather today, when photography dominates, that commissioning portraits has become a unique opportunity to memorialise loved ones in an original way. It captures being and offers a renewed observation of loved ones and their human qualities, in a way which only an oil painting could convey.
In this category, you can gain an impression from some commissions Ben Cnaan has executed over the last several years.
