The word gist means the entity, the essence, main point of something. Gist portrait is a new direction in art including painting. In the context of fine art, everything that is depicted can be concentrated in the image of a fantasy creature owing to a special gift of an artist to explore the core of the phenomenon. And only with the help of gestures, mimics, body structure, and dynamics of the depicted image, it is possible to understand the point of the events occurring in reality. Gist portrait can be also called soul portrait, portrait of the entity, portrait of a Guardian Angel.
