Essay by Joanna Trollope

Featuring works from an international list of artists, the BP Portrait Award highlights the vitality of portrait painting today. This book presents the diverse range of styles in contemporary portraiture and the variety of techniques used by artists working in the field today. In her introductory essay, ‘Remember Me’, Joanna Trollope considers the perspective of the sitter.

Description

The BP Portrait Award, now in its twenty-fourth year, is one of Britain’s most prestigious art prizes, and is the leading showcase for artists throughout the world specialising in portraiture.

Last year more than 255,000 people visited the exhibition, which is based on the competition open to all artists aged eighteen and over from around the world.

The catalogue features sixty works from an international list of artists, which together display a diverse range of styles and painterly techniques. It also includes a fascinating essay by bestselling novelist, Joanna Trollope, and interviews with the prizewinners by Richard McClure give further insight into the artists behind the portraits.
