A portrait opens a window into a person’s life: who they were and wanted to be, who the artist saw and how everyone else looked on. From the divine paintings of Elizabeth I to the iconic photograph of ‘bulldog’ Churchill; from Victorian portraits of dead children to Hockney’s of his elderly parents; from anonymous workers to the artists themselves, Simon Schama uses a stunning and surprising array of images to tell the story of the British from the Tudors to the present day. He will change the way we see Britain and each other.
