Sitter Quotations

Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.
Oscar Wilde

I've been criticised for pretty, smiley photographs, but at least someone is happy! In my mind, I am always giving the image to the sitter.
Mario Testino

My job requires me to put on a little dress and run around the streets of New York in heels. But I also had the financial means to hire a yoga teacher to come to my house while my sitter watched the newborn. For 95 percent of the world, that's not realistic.
Sarah Jessica Parker

It'd be stupid for me to sit here and say that there aren't kids who look up to me, but my responsibility is not to them. I'm not a baby sitter.

I would wish my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having a look of the sitter, being them.
Lucian Freud
