ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Few nations were so obsessed with portraiture at the expense of other forms of painting as Britain and AMerica, and the development of portrait painting in the two countries was closely linked. It was the kind of painting with which people were most familiar and, until the invention of photography towards the middle of the nineteenth century, the taking of a likeness was one of the main activities of even the most distinguished artists, while many less accomplished painters did nothing else.(Publisher).
