A Face to the World on Self-Portraits £18.99 by Laura Cumming
Paperback, 320 pages
Self-portraits catch your eye, for in picturing themselves, artists reveal something far more than physical looks: the truth about how they hope to be seen by the world and how they wish to see themselves. Laura Cumming, art critic for the Observer, draws on art, literature, history and philosophy to examine the creative process in an entirely different way. From Durer, Rembrandt and Veláquez to Munch, Picasso, Warhol and Emin.
