Summary
"For much of early modern history, the opportunity to be immortalized in a portrait was explicitly tied to social class: only landed elites and royalty had the money and power to commission such an endeavor. But in the second half of the 16th century, access began to widen to the urban middling sort, including merchants, lawyers, physicians, clergy, writers and musicians. As more accessible portraiture proliferated in English cities and towns, the urban elite gained social visibility--not just for themselves as individuals, but often for their entire class or industry. In Citizen Portrait, Tarnya Cooper examines the patronage and production of portraits in Tudor and Jacobean England, focusing on the motivations of those who chose to be painted and the impact of the resulting images. Highlighting the opposing, yet common themes of piety and self-promotion, Cooper has revealed a fresh area of interest for scholars of early modern British art."--book jacket
