Fayum Portraits Are the Original Picture Frames

Frames have existed since the second century B.C. The first “frames” were lines artists drew around Etruscan wall paintings and those around Egyptian portraits of the dead painted on wood. These paintings, known as Fayum mummy portraits, have wooden and fabric frames around them. Archaeologists and scholars speculate they were displayed in the households of the deceased before being placed on the mummies.


Fayum portraits are considered the oldest modernist paintings and the origins of framed art. Artists created images of the deceased using a technique known as encaustic painting, which consisted of using colored pigment mixed with heated beeswax. The portraits would sometimes extend onto the cloth wrappings.


Artists painted the majority of the portraits on panels or boards made from different imported hardwoods, including cedar, cypress, oak, lime, and sycamore. They cut the wood into thin panels and smoothed the pieces. Upon finishing the panels, they would set the portraits into layers of wrapping that enclosed the bodies, surrounding them with bands of cloth. This gave a window-like opening effect through which faces of the deceased could be seen, essentially framing the portraits.

  2. Artists usually have a potential to add some features and exaggerate. However, when it concerns a portrait, it falls into two categories - realism and expressionism (sometimes romanticism) and the top 5 of them are mentioned in essay writing for hire articles. Read the stories of famous artists and learn how and where they studied.
