In this New York Times Notable Book of 2016—a companion volume to the five-part BBC television series and the National Portrait Gallery exhibition of the same name—British historian and television presenter Simon Schama combines the two great passions that he explored in A History of Britain and Power of Art. Here are Churchill and his painter locked in a struggle of stares and glares, master portraitist Gainsborough watching his daughters run after a butterfly, the poet-artist Rossetti trying to capture on canvas what he couldn't possess in life, a surgeon-artist making studies of wounded faces in World War I, and a naked John Lennon photographed just hours before his death.
