The intrigue, drama, and covert messages hidden in the faces of powerful men and women

Byzantine empresses, French revolutionaries, and Spanish generals: history's most impressive figures stare boldly out of the canvases in this collection of formidable paintings.

Combining astute analysis with magnified painting details, this book is a unique historical investigation in tribute to the movers and shakers of the past.
