Changing Perceptions
Milestones in Twentieth-Century British Portraiture

Elizabeth Cayzer

Elizabeth Cayzer has worked in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, in commercial art galleries and as a private art dealer.

 


This book examines the extraordinary metamorphosis that has occurred in the presentation of the human face during the twentieth century. A series of essays charts the portraits which are the “Milestones” to that change, while the discussion that follows – “Changing Perceptions” – endeavours to identify its nature, its causes, and to show the manner in which the artists reveal this transformation when painting their sitters.


List of Contents to follow


“A well documented study of a number of key portraits of the century in which she weaves together the lives of representative artists and sitters into an effective narrative of twentieth-century portraiture as an art form.” Charles Saumarez Smith, Director, National Portrait Gallery
