Discover the hidden details concealed within depictions of powerful figures of the past, from the sixth-century prostitute turned Byzantine Empress Theodora to military leader and famous co-author of history’s rudest letter Ivan Sirko. Part detectives, part historians, Rose-Marie and Rainer Hagen dissect 13 historical masterworks, complete with insightful essays and crisp enlarged details. Byzantine empresses, French revolutionaries, and Spanish generals: history’s most impressive figures stare boldly out of the canvases in this collection of formidable paintings. Each individual represented in these images radiates with strength and splendor; be they an aristocratic widow in mourning, a murdered politician, or a jovial group of Ukrainian rebels.

Regal, holy, and wise, the men and women in these works will inspire you with their conquests and resilience. TASCHEN reproduces these masterworks in stunning quality, working in collaboration with esteemed art collections all over the world, including in Brussels, St. Petersburg, New York, and Naples. Combining astute analysis with magnified painting details, this book is a unique historical investigation in tribute to the movers and shakers of the past.
