"selfie culture" seems so tame by comparison when you realize that not only did old timey rich people spend a fortune commissioning artists to paint flattering images of them, they spent many hours sitting for these portraits

#art museums are actually just full of renaissance selfies this post just changed my life

Fun historical fact! Elizabeth I spent *very* little time sitting/standing for portraiture. She had a set of allowable official renderings of her face, and would send a lady (usually one of her ladies-in-waiting) who was close to her size to wear her clothes and pose for the piece in her place. Sometimes there wasn’t even a lady to wear the clothing.
