A clear theoretic distinction exists between the portrait and the figure. The portrait is said to reveal an aspect of the sitter, while figurative works involve broader considerations of the human condition.

In practice, however, the lines are often blurred. Considering Portraiture and Figuration draws together works from the QUT Art Collection that slip between these categories. Artists include Mary Cassatt, Noel Counihan, Jon Molvig, Stephen Nothling, Mike Parr, Ben Quilty and Stelarc.
