Self-Portraiture in the Twentieth Century

Author:  Wendy Wick Reaves (Editor)

In Reflections/Refractions, some of the greatest modern artists use self-portraiture to trace the intricacies of their personalities or artistic personas. The book is at once a catalog of twentieth-century self-portraits in the Portrait Gallery’s collection and an exploration of how modern artists view themselves and the world.
