Since ancient times, writings have emphasised the special status enjoyed by the face. The Holy Shroud and Narcissus bear witness to the extent to which the human face is the source and recipient of emotions such as love, desire and grief.

Straddling the line between personal essay and research, this book examines the relationship that artists have had with the face over the centuries.
the face in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: masks, caricatures, portraits, faces, photomatons, series, selfies, transhumanism. From Artaud, Michaud, Fautrier, Malevitch, Jawlensky and Music to Boltansky, Cindy Sherman and cyberface artists, the book takes a thematic look at the evolution of the face from the twentieth century to the present day.

The course of the book is supported by monographic sections, devoted in particular to the analysis of works by representative artists: Giacometti, Bacon, Bonnard, Spillaert and Picasso. The author concludes with a consideration of the faces of absence, which illustrate the violence of a century marked by exodus, and whose contours a number of visual artists, including Shimon Attie, Sliman Mansour and Alham Shibli, are attempting to unveil.
