Product Description
 
A compelling collection of self-portraits from throughout recorded history, revised to include captivating contemporary worksA compelling collection of self-portraits from throughout recorded history, revised to include captivating contemporary works
The challenge of interpreting and re-creating their own likenesses has proven irresistible to artists throughout the ages. This expanded and redesigned book presents a selection of powerfully evocative works by many of the world's greatest artists - from Durer and Rembrandt, to Marina Abramovic , David Hockney, and Cindy Sherman - working in painting, photography, sculpture, and performance. Flowing in a chronological sequence, with interspersed artist quotes, it features essays by Julian Bell and self-portraiture expert Liz Rideal. This is both a useful resource and a thoughtful celebration of a much loved art form.
