Roman-Egyptian funeral portrait of a young boy Self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh.
Some of the earliest portraits of people who were not kings or emperors, are the funeral portraits that survived in the dry climate of Egypt's Fayum district. These are the only paintings of the Roman period that have survived, aside from frescos. The art of the portrait flourished in Roman sculptures, where sitters demanded realistic portraits, even unflattering ones. During the 4th century, the portrait began to retreat in favor of an idealized symbol of what that person looked like. In Europe true portraits of the outward appearance of individuals re-emerged in the late Middle Ages, in Burgundy and France. One of best-known portraits in the Western world is Leonardo da Vinci's painting titled Mona Lisa - a painting of an unidentified woman. The world's oldest known portrait was found in 2006 by a local pensioner, Gérard Jourdy, in the Vilhonneur grotto near Angoulême and is thought to be 27,000-year-old.
