Prominent figures from the art establishment: colour photographs by Lucy Dickens

'This is a record of the great and the good in the art establishment at the beginning of the new millennium. It celebrates the contribution of the postwar generation, epitomized by the late Sir Ernst Gombrich, who brought new levels of academic rigour to art history, as well as the achievements of the current generation. Some are distinguished by their leadership of major national institutions; all are distinguished by their scholarship. Some are famous; others are unsung heroes. The portraits, formal and considered, reflect the stature of their subjects. The settings, chosen by the sitters, whether at home, or at their place of work, reflect their passion. The original list of sitters was compiled in discussion with my father, Sir Oliver Millar, former Director of the Royal Collection, and Charles Saumarez Smith, Director of the National Gallery and former Director of the National Portrait Gallery. It grew through the further suggestions of the sitters themselves. I am immensely grateful to those who agreed to sit for me, despite the pressures on their time, and in some cases, old age or infirmity. I was met unfailingly with courtesy (and often fish pie).' Lucy Dickens, August 2002
