Faces are greater than a montage of organs that see, breathe, communicate, pay attention, devour, sing, odor, and yell. As Josephine Tey issues out in her secret novel, The Daughter of Time, the slant of an eyebrow, the set of a mouth, the glance of the attention, the firmness of a chin, usually delivers proof of personality that's as telling as a document card or a police blotter. these gains depicted on snap shots of people might be both telling of the person’s internal nature or even of what the artist thinks (or wishes the viewer to imagine) concerning the individual being portrayed. occasionally a portrait should be much more necessary than a biography.

While analyzing those graphics, the writer considers 3 questions: what was once Wesley’s perspective towards the portrait (if any), how did the general public reply to those portrayals, and what was once the artist trying to exhibit? This publication makes a speciality of the most graphics and their derivatives, taking a look at them in the 3 major different types that constructed through the years: Oxford don, Methodist preacher, and extraordinary individual. even though those varieties appeared to come up in chronological order, there's a few overlap among different types, particularly towards the top of Wesley’s existence and beyond.
