For 300 years, Americans have created portraits to commemorate loved ones, glorify the famous, establish our national myths, and honor our shared heroes. Whether painting in oil, carving in stone, casting in bronze, capturing on film, or calculating in binary code, we spend considerable time creating and contemplating our likenesses. In this sumptuously illustrated book, Richard Saunders explores our collective understanding of portraiture, examining works by Whistler, Peale, Eakins, Copley, Sargent, and Grant Wood, plus a host of intriguing but perhaps unfamiliar artists.
