1942, the famous New York gallery, Portraits, Incorporated,
has offered to the American public (as their ads have said)
"your choice of today's foremost portrait painters and
sculptors." The list of distinguished artists represented
includes virtually every noted American portraitist of the past
seventy years. In addition to the artists pictured here, the
list includes giants of the past: Andrew Wyeth, Albert Murray,
Robert Brackman, John Koch and Samuel Edmund Oppenheim, as well
as busy contemporaries such as Daniel Greene, John Howard Sanden,
Aaron Shikler, Nelson Shanks, Burton Silverman and many more.
In this richly-illustrated screen presentation, Portraits, Inc.
pays tribute to this heritage of American portrait art. Masterpieces
by these and other artists will be shown, presented by John
Howard Sanden, himself a 45-year veteran of the world of portraiture.
The presentation will include fascinating details regarding
the creation of these masterworks of American portrait art.
