Most of the material in this fascinating exploration of contemporary portraiture was researched and written by Jo Higgins. Her riveting analyses and narratives that accompany each entry are written with stylish clarity and great insight into the work of many cutting edge 21st century artists. By carefully grounding their work within the historical tradition of portraiture, Ms Higgins has been able to show the courageous leaps that these artists have taken by pushing the concept of identity beyond conventional bounds and by embracing a wide range of unusual media. The book is a joy to read from cover to cover or to dip into when the fancy strikes.

Beyond the stunning design this book is insightful, considered and illuminating. After I bought it for my own reference I then bought it for three people as gifts- it's a book every art lover should have on their shelf.

This is an exciting and fresh look at portraits. A thought-provoking selection of portraits and beautifully written. Great for art lovers and just lovers of good books.

Very good book. I particularly enjoyed the section on the work of Craig Wylie. Excellent picture quality and first class value for money.

This book is not what I'm looking for in a portrait book. I would like a book of every Archibald Prize winner and of those submitted. That would be a book of portraits!!!!!
