Portraits from the past can tell us a lot. What did people wear? What sort of people were painted? How did they want to be presented? ‘Faces of Sweden’ is an interactive timeline showcasing historical portraits from the Nordic Museum, Stockholm. You can use it to cut through time, compare different periods and see how clothes, hairstyles and the style of portraiture changes. The timeline displays 785 portraits (mostly oil paintings but also prints, silhouettes, photographs) dating between 1570-2003.
Portraiture in the Nordic Museum collection has been collected for its cultural heritage value; the paintings serve as a record of what people wore, what kinds of people were depicted, and the artwork that decorated people’s homes.
