Changing Perceptions

Milestones in Twentieth-Century British Portraiture

By Elizabeth Cayzer

This book examines the extraordinary metamorphsis that has occured in the presentation of the human face during the 20th-century. A series of essays charts the portraits which are "Milestones" to that change, while the discussion which follows - "chaging Perceptions" - endeavours to identify its causes, and to show the manner in which the artists reveal this transformation when painting their sitters.
