The National Portrait Gallery commissions about six portraits a year as part of its commitment to collecting portraits of those who have made an important contribution to British history and culture. Over the last thirty years, it has commissioned some 160 portrait paintings, sculptures, drawings and works in mixed media, about five or six a year, as well as many photographs. These portraits now form the backbone of the contemporary displays.
