Abstract:

Simon Schama explores the history of British portraiture, revealing the stories behind some of the most powerful images in British art. In collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery in London, Schama examines the five ways in which this unique art-form has been used by both subject and artist - as a statement of power, a declaration of love, to promote fame, to capture ordinary people and to offer insight into the artists themselves. Discover how Elizabeth I used images of herself as political propaganda; how George Romney's obsessive depictions of Emma Hart helped her win the heart of Horatio Nelson; and how Henry Tonks's portraits of disfigured soldiers in World War One helped give these men back their identities. Finally, Schama explores the role of self-portraiture, using works ranging from Lucian Freud to Marc Quinn.
