"While conceived as a free-standing unit, this book also constitutes the first part of a general survey of the history of the portrait as an art form. As such, it may claim the elementary virture of novelty, since to the best of our knowledge, no systematic attempt at such a survey exists. More to the point, it is to be hoped that the vantage of such a survey may afford some useful insights into both the history of a rather special form of artistic expression and the history of art in general." (preface) Offers six chapters that cover Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Late Antique period portraiture. Includes a list of abbreviations of serial publications and a list of illustrations. Chapter I is titled: What Is a Portrait? (Inventory #: 156071)
