As part of their family On-Site: North Hollywood series, LACMA presents Portraiture during the Reformation on Saturday, January 28. The Reformation in Germany (1460–1580) was characterized by profound changes in thought, philosophy, science, and religion. These changes transformed the work of many artists of the day, and gave rise to portraiture in painting, print, and drawing as the demand for religious works declined. These intricate portraits reflected the sitter’s wealth and class rank, and they were also able to capture the sitter’s true physical features, gaze, and character.
