The Portrait Staircase

On the long white wall install many attractive portraits of people from different walks of lives with their own interesting background. Westwardly, there are Jules Joseph Hallez’s oil painting of an attorney wearing elegant black robe drawn on 1848 during French Revolution Wars, a crochet portraying a high-classed woman who sat reading a book, which represents women’s limited freedom in old days and an interesting portrait of Chinese wealthy person, the ancestor of the museum owner, which has been drawn by an Italian artist ten years ago. Upwardly, the portrait of our beloved H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej has been respectively placed in order to remind everyone of his hardworking time. Apart from the pictures mention before, there are more than 40 portraits of people like artists, politicians, actors, lawyers or even common men who died gracefully who attract and inspire Sermkhun’s heart. All portraits belong to well-known artists e.g. Sakwut Wisesmanee, Chamras Khietkong, Kritsada Phakawatsuntorn, Thanarit Thipwaree and Myrtille Tibayrenc, together with Atchalinee Kesornsuk, a new generation artist.
