Richard P. Heitzenrater's An Exact Likeness: The Portraits of John Wesley PDF

By Richard P. Heitzenrater

Faces are greater than a montage of organs that see, breathe, converse, listen, consume, sing, odor, and yell. As Josephine Tey issues out in her secret novel, The Daughter of Time, the slant of an eyebrow, the set of a mouth, the glance of the attention, the firmness of a chin, usually offers facts of personality that's as telling as a record card or a police blotter. these beneficial properties depicted on images of people may be both telling of the person’s internal nature or even of what the artist thinks (or desires the viewer to imagine) concerning the individual being portrayed. occasionally a portrait will be much more precious than a biography.

While analyzing those photos, the writer considers 3 questions: what was once Wesley’s perspective towards the portrait (if any), how did the general public reply to those portrayals, and what was once the artist trying to express? This e-book makes a speciality of the most pix and their derivatives, taking a look at them in the 3 major different types that built through the years: Oxford don, Methodist preacher, and striking individual. even supposing those varieties appeared to come up in chronological order, there's a few overlap among different types, particularly towards the top of Wesley’s existence and beyond.
