National Portrait Gallery: 100 Portraits

Author(s): Nicholas Cullinan


The collections of the National Portrait Gallery, which consist of more than 11,000 paintings, sculptures and works on paper and over a quarter of a million photographs, provide a fascinating commentary on British history and culture, addressing questions of identity and achievement and promoting engagement with portraiture in all media. With an introduction from the Gallery's Director, this book provides an insight into the most extensive collection of portraits in the world and the influential sitters and artists within it, from the remarkable survivors of the Tudor period to the familiar faces of our own time. 100 Portraits presents a selection of images of significant individuals who have shaped the last four centuries of British life, from Anne Boleyn to David Beckham, from William Shakespeare to J.K. Rowling, portrayed by artists as diverse as Joshua Reynolds, Andy Warhol and IdaKar. Each image is accompanied by an extended caption with key information on the sitter and the artist.
