Second Renaissance is a key visual trend of 2018. Getty Images is getting off on imagery that pays homage to classic portraiture while delivering a contemporary perspective to classical themes.

And the keywords to Second Renaissance? They would be portrait, contemplation, classic style and elegance.

Earlier this year, Getty Images identified Second Renaissance, Masculinity Undone and Conceptual Realism as the trio of trends consumers are most responsive to this year.

Trend data is drawn from the 1bn customer searches and 400m downloads from the Getty Images website each year.
