    Portraiture is a very old art form going back at least to ancient Egypt, where it flourished from about 5,000 years ago. Before the invention of photography, a painted, sculpted, or drawn portrait was the only way to record the appearance of someone.

    But portraits have always been more than just a record. They have been used to show the power, importance, virtue, beauty, wealth, taste, learning or other qualities of the sitter.

      Eva Roos was a London-based British artist and illustrator of childrens’ books. She exhibited five works at the Royal Academy between 1898 and 1904. The National Museum of Wales has a sculpted portrait in copper of her by Sir William Goscombe John. Perhaps suggesting a friendship, her husband, the painter Simon Harmon Vedder, painted a portrait of Goscombe John (exhibited at the RA in 1901).
