The face or appearance of a person.
A kindly man, he had a bright, cheerful visage that people found attractive.
Visage is one of several words for the human face. Countenance and physiognomy are two others. Countenance is usually used to refer to the face as it reveals moods or character, and physiognomy is used when referring to the shape or contour of the face. Visage is a more literary term and may refer either to the shape of the face or the impression it gives or the mood it reveals. FBI Most Wanted posters seem to emphasize the threatening visages of the suspects. Unlike countenance and physiognomy, the use of visage is not restricted to humans. We can speak, for instance, of the grimy visage of a mining town.
