What are the Temperaments?

 

The Four Temperaments is a personality theory that dates back to the ancient Greek philosophers; the modern theory focuses on 4 main personality types, and the combinations between them:

  • Choleric

  • Melancholy

  • Phlegmatic

  • Sanguine


I grew up with the Four Temperaments as a running discussion in my home, and it still shapes how I perceive the people around me today.

The Temperaments Collection consists of:

  • 4 24x36" watercolor paintings on canvas of the main Temperament Types

  • 12 18x24" watercolor paintings on paper, illustrating the combinations

  • The model for each portrait is a real person who identifies as that specific type

  • The colors are chosen according to my personal color-theory
