A painting of a house can be a powerful thing. Homes are where memories are made, relationships are forged, and celebrations occur. Our homes are more to us than just bricks and mortar: those walls have witnessed a myriad of life’s precious moments.
It is easy to see why houses and buildings have for so long enjoyed a special place in the history of art and commissioning. House portraiture brings the personal story of a home to the forefront, allowing artists and homeowners to express the often deep and emotional pull that we as humans feel towards the buildings we inhabit.
