Pressestimmen"Catherine M. Sousloff has managed, in her philosophical and art historical reflections on the portrait in modernity, to bring important insights to our understanding of the relation between the individual and history. The 'individual' is the great enigma of modernist history. In focusing on the 'subject' in the individual as revealed and hidden in modern portraiture, Sousloff exposes many of the open secrets of modernist historical consciousness as well."-- Hayden White, Presidential Professor of Historical Studies, Emeritus, University of California and Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University
