Portraiture (Reaktion Books - Essays in Art and Culture)
Richard BrilliantISBN: 0948462191;
Book DescriptionThis is the first general and theoretical study devoted entirely to portraiture. More than a survey of the genre or a history of its reception, Richard Brilliant probes the connections between the subject-matter of portraits and the response of the viewer, both to the image itself and to the person it represents. He shows how portraiture is a phenomenon in Western art that is especially sensitive to changes in society's perception of the nature of the individual.
