Discussing portraits of around 190 people, ranging chronologically from Henry VII to Grayson Perry and Elizabeth II, this study uses the superb collection of the National Portrait Gallery to explore the role of clothing and accessories in portraiture. With an illustrated introductory chapter and detailed commentary on 95 individuals, pairs or groups, the book looks at how clothing and fabrics are used to delineate identity and character, and how the choice of apparel gives insight into a sitter’s personality.
