Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In chronologischer Anordnung präsentiert dieses Buch 500 Selbstporträts vom alten Ägypten bis zum Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ein Abbild von sich selbst zu schaffen war für Künstler stets eine unwiderstehliche Herausforderung; der Band versammelt suggestive Werke von vielen der größten Maler und Bildhauer der Welt, darunter Dürer, Rembrandt, Picasso, Andy Warhol und viele mehr. Jedes Bild ist zugleich Kunstwerk, psychologische Studie und Zeugnis der Selbstwahrnehmung. 500 Self-Portraits ist eine faszinierende Sammlung und eine ungewöhnliche Auseinandersetzung mit dem menschlichen Spiegelbild in der Geschichte der Kunst.

Synopsis:

Organized chronologically, from ancient Egypt to the late 20th century, this book is a compelling collection of self-portraits from throughout recorded history.
