Synopsis: From Boldini, Schiele, Grosz and Picasso to Hockney, Freud and the latest wave of new emerging artists, this book celebrates the turbulent history and extraordinary revolutions in styles and attitudes towards the portrait in European and American art throughout the 20th century. One hundred portraits, including cultural icons and some of the most important works of art from the last century, are here presented chronologically to form an overview of portraiture and the portrait from 1900 to 2000. The text places each work in its cultural and artistic context, and gives biographies for all the artists illustrated.

About the Author: Norbert Lynton is Emeritus Professor of the History of Art at the University of Sussex. He has taught for many years, but also works as an art critic and exhibition curator. He has written extensively on architecture and modern art, including works on Paul Klee, Ben Nicholson and Victor Pasmore. Robin Gibson is was formerly the Chief Curator at the National Portrait Gallery. His previous publications include books on the photographer Madame Yevonde, the Sitwells and twentieth-century and contemporary portraiture. He has also written on the artists Glyn Philpot, John Bratby, William Roberts, Glenys Barton and Eduardo Paolozzi.
