Catherine Goodman Portraits from Life

Published to accompany a display at the National Portrait Gallery 17 June - 23 November 2014

Price: £12.00

Members price: £10.80


A display of recent portraits by the British artist Catherine Goodman, winner of the BP Portrait Award 2002, opens to coincide with this annual exhibition. Goodman’s expressive portraits of family and friends are not only likenesses but offer a powerful insight into the interior world of both artist and sitter.

Goodman’s subjects include film director Stephen Frears, poet and broadcaster Daisy Goodwin, novelist Vikram Seth, Princes Drawing School student and ex-soldier Harry Parker and lawyer Diana Rawstron. All the portraits were painted in the artist’s London studio over the past three years and will be seen at the Gallery for the first time.

The Gallery’s relationship with Goodman dates back to 2002 when she was awarded first prize in the BP Portrait Award for her painting of Dom Antony Sutch, master of Downside College. To mark this year’s 25th anniversary of the BP Portrait Award the Gallery will display a new portrait of Sutch together with Goodman’s BP Portrait Award winner’s commission for the Gallery’s permanent collection, her 2005 painting of the founder of the modern hospice movement Dame Cicely Saunders, which was later the subject of a Royal Mail stamp.
