This book examines the extraordinary metamorphosis that has occurred in the presentation of the human face during the twentieth century. A series of essays charts the portraits that are Milestones' to that change, while the discussion which follows -- Changing Perceptions' -- endeavours to identify its nature, its causes, and to show how the manner in which the artists reveal this transformation when painting their sitters.
