Displaying Portraits

You'll get the most viewing enjoyment from your portraits if they are displayed in the room where you spend most of your leisure time. For most people, this is the family or living room.

When selecting a location, consider a wall that is within comfortable viewing distance and angle from the main seating areas. If you have to get up to see the portrait, you probably won't...the most popular places for displaying include over the fireplace, above a sofa or loveseat, or above a piano or other piece of furniture that draws attention to itself.
