100+ Portraits of Iconic People of All Time

Today we bring you a great collection of portraits of the most iconic people throughout history.

Portraits explore the relationship between the subject and the photographer or artist and usually continue to impress the viewer years after they have been created.

The common thread running through all of these portraits is superlative design. Each is a masterpiece in its own right, from the medieval painted portraits right up to the most current photographs.

This collection is arranged in alphabetical order and is by no means complete.

    These are truly iconic. I have saved them. I am trying to attach here the portrait of Sir Thomas More by Hans Holbein the Younger (the Henry VIII portraitist from this collection) which I think may be the greatest portrait of all time. The textures and detail can't be appreciated from reproductions like this link. It can be seen at The Frick Collection, NYC. I visit it every year.
