With an essay by Jeremy Wood

This book brings together fifty exquisite observational portrait drawings from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, including works by Leonardo da Vinci, Dürer, Holbein, Bernini, Carracci, Clouet, Rubens and Rembrandt. More than a record of the sitters’ appearance, these works capture a moment of connection between artist and sitter: an encounter.
