Faces are greater than a montage of organs that see, breathe, communicate, pay attention, consume, sing, scent, 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 file card or a police blotter. these gains depicted on images of people might be both telling of the person’s internal nature or maybe of what the artist thinks (or desires the viewer to imagine) in regards to the individual being portrayed. occasionally a portrait could be much more beneficial than a biography.

While reading those pix, the writer considers 3 questions: what used to be Wesley’s angle towards the portrait (if any), how did the general public reply to those portrayals, and what used to be the artist trying to exhibit? This booklet specializes in the most snap shots and their derivatives, taking a look at them in the 3 major different types that built through the years: Oxford don, Methodist preacher, and impressive individual. even though those kinds appeared to come up in chronological order, there's a few overlap among different types, specially towards the tip of Wesley’s existence and beyond.
