   Welcome to largest database of chronologically-arranged portraits on the internet. Immerse in the past by choosing a decade from the dropdown menu, then scroll through the timeline forward or backward. You can hover the mouse over any portrait to find the identity of the sitter, the artist, and where it's located. Click on any year marker to see what historical events were happening simultaneously. Use the search bar to find specific artists, sitters, museums, themes, or objects (e.g. "heraldry" or "book"). The search function currently spans from 1500 to 1658. Enjoy!
