Portraits Unmasked

The Stories Behind the Faces

Francesca Bonazzoli, Michele Robecchi

The identities of the figures depicted in 43 artworks created since the Renaissance are revealed in this illustrated volume. While uncovering the circumstances that secured their immortality, it also records facts such as how the teenage subject of da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine nearly destroyed a marriage; that Francis Bacon's character George Dyer was a man he met in a Soho nightclub; and that American Gothic represents a father and his spinster daughter.
