Actually starting long before Rembrandt, with Palma Vecchio (c.1480–1528), this catalogue of 150 self-portraits accompanied a collaborative exhibition by the National Galleries of Scotland and galleries in Karlsruhe and Lyon. After three essays discussing the motivation and progress of the self-portrait from a medieval goldsmith inserting himself in an altar to the ubiquitous selfie, the book brings together an extraordinary range of paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture, with commentary on each artist and how they pictured themselves.
