The genius of these artists allowed them to overcome the limits of the genre and inscribe the art of portraiture into the universal history of mankind. Sharply focused, spectacularly reproduced in an extraordinarly large format volume, and featuring meticulously researched illustrations, this beautiful book is the first of its kind to shed light on some of the most familiar images in art history.
