Kings, queens, presidents and dignitaries have always known: to really be remembered, their portraits had to be captured in oil. A fine portrait painting ensures the subject will be remembered for all time. How do we know? Just walk through any museum; you’ll see the likenesses of Egyptian kings, monarchs from the middle ages, guild members from the seventeenth century and modern icons like inventors, scientists and statesmen. The list goes on. And because an oil portrait on canvas should last hundreds of years (at least), people in floating cities in 2215 will still know what you or a loved one looked like, dressed like, as well as your tastes and stature. Oil portraits are more than just a snap shot or frozen moment in time because in the hands of a gifted artist the person portrayed is shown at their idealized best; their best self; the way they want to be remembered.
Mark Hess is just such an artist. He paints treasured legacy portrait paintings. His work has been awarded, collected in museums (The Smithsonian’s Portrait Gallery holds the most at nine), commissioned by Fortune 500 executives, universities and featured in journals worldwide.
