Summary
Costume, portraiture, and the presentation of the individual have been intimately linked throughout the history of art. While the face of the person portrayed is often still directly accessible to us, the details and significance of their dress can be less easy to comprehend. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this authoritative guide centres around 190 examples from the National Portrait Gallery's Collection. Through these, it explores the purpose and original context of the dress in which each sitter was recorded: the damasks, satins, velvets and furs of Tudor and Stuart magnificence worn by Queen Elizabeth I and Charles I, but also the revolutionary simplicity of the cottons, linens, and woollen cloth adopted by Mary Wollstonecraft, John Constable, and John Clare
