Profile

From Italian profilo (side view, contour). Generally the side view of a person, an object or a building. In art, profile, the opposite to front view, is the side view of a person directed or not towards the onlooker at different angles. Besides the strict (pure) side view, one distinguishes between quarter, half and three-quarter profile as well as disappearing or lost profile.
