500 Self-PortraitsRegular price £19.95
'Flowing chronologically from antiquity to the present day, this volume takes the reader through the apparently infinite ways artists have found to represent themselves in sculptures, etchings, paintings, film, installations and conceptual works' - Art Mag
A compelling collection of self-portraits from throughout recorded history, revised to include captivating contemporary works
The challenge of interpreting and recreating their own likenesses has proven irresistible to artists throughout the ages. Originally published more than 80 years ago and last revised in 2000, this wholly new edition for 2018 presents a selection of powerfully evocative works by many of the world's greatest artists - from Dürer 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 Liz Rideal.
This is both a useful resource and a thoughtful celebration of a much-loved art form.
