History Portraits: The Rebirth of the Painted Picture after the End of Painting
Cindy Sherman’s work is structured into series, the best known being History Portraits and Untitled Film Stills (1977–1980), which led to her artistic breakthrough. Christa Schneider presents an art-historical analysis of the former, identifying a clear model for every single portrait—among them Botticelli, Rubens, François Boucher, and Jacques-Louis David.
