Last week I was quite interested in finding a very good book to open my eyes to the history of portraiture since I'm quite a fan of Boticelli works, the cool thing is that I stop by the library and found "Portraiture", from the Oxford History of Arts

The book covers all and everything from the developement of portraiture throughout hundreds of years as it face many different socio-economic-political and cultura manifestations.

Delineating an identity where aspects like gender is taken in its historical context. Also, Shearer Wests goes into great detail illustrating the fascinating lives of great artists suchs Boticelli, Picasso, Frida Kahlo et al.

Magnificent in its making Portraiture is a book for anyone interested in the history of arts regarding to portraiture.
