Would You Want a Mannequin To Pose For Your Portrait Painting?

Lay models were a favorite of 19th century portrait artists.....

The life-size models were dressed and posed same as the woman sitting for her portrait...
Allowing their subject to only pose when the artist painted her face and hands.

No sitting still for hours and hours....what a luxury!
