Beyond the Face
New Perspectives on PortraitureBook - 2018
Presents sixteen essays by leading scholars who explore the subtle means by which artists - and subjects - convey a sense of identity and reveal historical context. Examining a wide range of topics, from early caricature and the political vandalism of portraits to contemporary selfies and performance art, these studies challenge our traditional assumptions about portraiture. By probing the diversity and complexity of portrayal, this book fills a gap in current scholarship and offers a resource fro teaching art history, subjectivity, and the construction of identity.
