Summary
"The faces featured in this volume reveal that portraits of the Middle Ages nearly inverted modern expectations. Instead of the subjects' physical appearance, medieval artists emphasized their power and piety, capturing not a single moment but how they wished to be remembered for the ages. This book looks in detail at portraits of illustrious historical figures as well as those of celebrated contemporaries."--BOOK JACKET
