The Intimate and The Eternal: a Commissioned Work of Art
Art records, it describes, it reveals. Many definitive works of Art by well know artists originated either as commissions or the recording of family and friends. For centuries commissions have played an important role in the history of art. Whether it is to commemorate an engagement, a birth or to capture a personal passion, the nature of a commission is both intimate and eternal. It is one individual seeking interpretation, revelation, or celebration by commissioning the artistic eye of another.
