The Three Laws of Portraiture by Richard Wendorf explores the way that both modern and classic portraits reveal the relationships between an artist and their subject. Wendorf illustrates his ideas with engaging anecdotes about artists who charm their sitters, those who inconvenience them, and how these interactions influence the portrait.

This volume includes beautifully printed color plates of pieces by Joshua Reynolds, Reynaldo Luza, Paul Brason, Lucian Freud, John Francis Rigaud, George Romney, and David Hockney. These successful works demonstrate how sitters relate not only to the artist, but to each other, and in the case of the self-portrait, how the artist relates to themselves.
