With this year’s BP Portrait Awards being concluded, and a most remarkable and beautifully painted image taking first prize, I thought maybe a small retrospective glance at a past years’ works was in order. I have chosen 2009 rather randomly, as it was the first to catch my eye.
All of these images are from the National Portrait Galleries Archives and can be viewed along with a short biography of the artist and the artist’s statement for each piece.
I have selected the portraits which resonated with me, your choice from the 51 paintings might be totally different from mine……….have a look and see which your 6 favourites would be.
Have a wonderful weekend.
