By Richard P. Heitzenrater

Faces are greater than a montage of organs that see, breathe, converse, pay attention, consume, 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, frequently gives you proof of personality that's as telling as a document card or a police blotter. these beneficial properties depicted on photographs of people could be both telling of the person’s internal nature or even of what the artist thinks (or desires the viewer to imagine) concerning the individual being portrayed. occasionally a portrait could be much more necessary than a biography.

While interpreting 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 show? This ebook specializes in the most snap shots and their derivatives, them in the 3 major different types that constructed through the years: Oxford don, Methodist preacher, and amazing individual. even though those kinds appeared to come up in chronological order, there's a few overlap among different types, particularly towards the tip of Wesley’s existence and beyond.
