6 Why has Portraiture been used in the past? Sign of wealth. Capture a physical likeness to send to a person they may wish to marry. However some portraits were made to show an idealised (air brushed) image of the person so they appeared better looking. Showing a physical presence in a building or space when they are absent.

8 BUT Why do we still use the painted portrait? To observe and understand physical proportion. Explore human expression. Patience through the painting process. A painting is a one off piece and can never be painted the same way again. Where as a digital photo is one of many and can easily be forgotten.
