I thought it might be a nice idea to start a gallery of portraits of notable historians, whether in works of art or photographs. To start off on a not too serious note, here is a psychedelic (and I fear rather ugly) portait of A.J.P. Taylor by Maggi Hambling:

And a caricature of the rather ugly Edward Gibbon with his pot belly:Esward Gibbon.jpg

This is a picture of HERODOT from 1963 by Oskar Kokoschka, one of the most visionary painters ever. Unfortunately the image resolution is small and the image colors very pale.

Not nice to call other people ugly.
