Portraits - single, double, and group - are the focus of this fascinating volume. Encompassing work from the 18th century to the present, this selection examines how portraits shape our notion of self in the context of individuality, partnerships and relationships. Four illustrated essays probe topics such as the portrait as a representation of identity and personality from the perspective of photography, cinema and theatre; the double portrait in all its variety, such as heterosexual and same-sex couples, mother and child, twins, reflections, shadows and doppelgangers; and the sometimes uneasy alliance between the individual and community - in portraiture. Thought-provoking and fascinating, this book will appeal to a range of readers, from those interested in art history and social criticism to psychology and social media.
