The intrigue, drama, and covert messages hidden in the faces of powerful men and women Byzantine empresses, French revolutionaries, and Spanish generals: history’s most impressive
figures stare boldly out of the canvases in this collection of formidable paintings.

women in these works will inspire you with their conquests and resilience.
