Description: Every time an artist prepares to make a portrait he can not help but wonder about the pose to be given to the subject. Will he depict him standing, sitting or lying down? What feeling will shine through the expression of his face? Will the hands be crossed on the chest or intent on performing some apotropaic rite? Of course, a painting captures us in the first place for the quality of the painting and for the identity of the protagonist, but every gesture, expression or posture of the body is actually the key to a casket within which you can find traces of the customs of a particular historical period and legacies of cultures distant in time and space.
