Reproductive prints of portraits might also be commissioned by the sitter. These might be merely 'private plates', prints designed solely for distribution to relatives and friends, or they might be commercially produced, and so widely advertised and sold, bringing fame to artist as well as sitter. Generally, arrangements concerning reproductions were agreed between sitter and artist before the commission began.
