You’d certainly be forgiven in assuming that Hugh Ramsay’s glowingly cream 1904 painting The Sisters is a portrait of two women.
"Two" is easy: that’s just a matter of counting. (In fact, even counting is probably unnecessary to recognize that.)
As for classifying The Sisters as portraiture: well, not only does Ramsay draw from a portrait tradition in his style, but the two women have a clear individuality to their features.
And actually, you’d be right in thinking it’s a portrait.
Of three women.
As the Art Gallery of New South Wales writes, The Sisters is “a composite portrait of [Ramsay’s] three sisters, Madge, Nell and Jessie.”
