This fascinating exhibition always attracts some well-known faces both on and off the walls. It is a showcase of the best recent portraits by artists at all stages in their careers from eminent masters to emerging new talent. It encompasses a huge range of characters, styles and media, showing the breadth of the contemporary painted portrait.

Commissions are vital to this genre so Consultants are available throughout the show to help anybody who would like to know more about commissioning a portrait.
