PhD in Fine Arts




Doctoral Thesis: The Portrait Beyond Identity. Valencia, Spain 25th Jan. 2016.

Jury: Dra. Eva Marí, Dr. Juan Francisco Rueda, Dr. Juan Carlos Meana. Calif: SUMMA CUM LAUDE

Download Doctoral Thesis - Spanish Version

The portrait genre has been, from its very beginning and up until the end of the XIX century, intrinsically linked to the representation of the human face. Consequently, one of its main aims has been the capture of the represented subject's identity according to their physical and psychological traits. The redefinition of the characteristics and limits of the portrait genre by the historical avant-garde movement, as well as the critical context following the Second World War, oblige artists to build a new vision of the individual. They mark, too, the beginning of a new process where the identity of the portrayed subjects, which had until then been the inherent characteristic of art work within this genre, starts losing relevance until its disappearance from the practice of contemporary painting. Considering these facts, this research paper sets a question on the expansion of the portrait genre in contemporary paintings beyond the identity of a specific portrayed individual.
The conclusions draw an affirmative answer to our research question: in contemporary times, a field within the portrait genre has been created, where artists work with the pictorial representation of the human face after the disappearance of the subject's identity.
