Portraiture and social identity in eighteenth-century Rome

Sabrina Norlander Eliasson

Published by Manchester University Press

  • First book in the English language to discuss portraiture and social formation in eighteenth-century Rome
  • Explores the diverse myth of Antiquity as expressed in portraiture
  • Consciously puts the British grand Tour portraits side by side with those painted for the native Romans and compares them
  • Uses a wealth of previously unpublished documents alongside literary texts little-known to an English-speaking audience
