Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and a new series on Channel 4, 'Self-Portraits: The Me Generation', this book presents an ambitious exploration of the self-portrait from its inception in the late-fifteenth century to the end of the twentieth.

The artists are shown constructing their identity, setting the scene of their life and times, and, above all, showing themselves as creative individuals often captured in the act of recreating their own image in the studio.
