Portraiture of Classical antiquity was in the form of portrait sculpture, many examples of which are exhibited at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art. By contrast, the portraiture of the Renaissance took the form of paintings done in oils. Oil paints were made from finely ground up minerals and herbs that were carefully mixed with oils such as linseed.
