The article focuses on the concept of mimesis in Renaissance portraiture as well as in portraits of modernity. The article discusses the significance of mimesis in portraiture as compared to genres of painting in which the artists have more freedom, the popularity of documentary portraits during the Renaissance and the concept of automimesis in reference to self-portraiture. The article goes on to discuss the work of British artist Marc Quinn, whose self-portrait sculptures are created from the artist's frozen blood and have the ability to be destroyed and recreated.
