Fantastic Faces Art Box
There are few things as fantastic as the human face, the three artists we are focusing on in this box – Johannes Vermeer, Chris Ofili and Frida Kahlo – all painted portraits, but at completely different times in history, and in completely different places around the world.

What's the story behind Fantastic Faces?
Artists’ portraits have always been more than just a record of a face. In olden times, when they were commissioned to show off the power, importance, beauty, wealth or learning of the sitter, they tended to flatter. Painters such as William Hogarth, who refused to pander to their sitters’ vanity, tended to be short of work! In contrast, modern artists have painted their friends and lovers in whatever way they pleased. Look, for example, at Francis Bacon’s distorted faces or Picasso’s distinctly unflattering pictures of women.
