Review: A Face to the World: On Self Portraits

User Review  - Catherine Austen - Goodreads

I loved this book. Each chapter looks at a different artist, and what their self-portraits might suggest. Well-written, informative and provocative without ever being out of reach for someone like me who really doesn't know much about art history. Read full review
