This course examines portraiture from the late 15th to the 20th century, assessing how artists meet the challenge of depicting society's changing perception of itself. Symbolism within portraiture will also be discussed and how pose, glance, gesture and dress affect our interpretation of the subjects. One session will be held in the Fitzwilliam Museum.
