Why commission a portrait with Rothschild Portraiture?
Rothschild Portraiture works with businesses, government agencies, and universities. Executed in a reserved classical style, a portrait painting by Rothschild Portraiture is an answer when it is time to commemorate the most valuable members of your organization. Hand-applied acrylic paint artistry combined with signature digital artwork creates an effect of an oil painting.
You may commission your Rothschild portrait in one of the several classical sizes. A size that you choose is mainly dictated by three factors: viewing distance, a number of people in a portrait, and how a portrait is cropped. The main consideration is that a person in a portrait remains within 75-100% of their real life size.
Keep in mind that longer viewing distance increases recommended portrait size. For example, at 20 feet, 18 x 24” becomes a recommended minimum size for a one-person portrait (instead of a 16 x 20”). You will have a chance to preview your portrait in each size before making a decision.

I’ve searched far and wide for the framing that would perfectly compliment my portraits. When you see it in person – you’ll understand why. My favorite frames are a perfect blend of antiquities and modern styling – executed with a painstaking detail. The choice of the frame (Heirloom or Estate) is dictated by the size of the painting, but whether you like gilding or varnished wood – it is up to you (see the varnishes below).
Heirloom Fine-Art Frame
This elegant handcrafted wood frame has a classic decorative profile embellished with fine relief detail, complete with distinctive ornate sculpted corners, will take you back to a bygone era of craftsmanship. 3 1/2″ wide. Available in 5 finishes.
