Corporate support

a place that has never looked shinier or more alive
Andrew Motion, The Guardian

The National Portrait Gallery houses the world’s largest collection of personalities and faces, from the late Middle Ages to the present day. A national pantheon of the greatest names in British history and culture, the collection includes kings and queens, courtiers and courtesans, politicians and poets, soldiers and scientists, artists, philosophers, stars of film and sport and many more.  

Through the special qualities of the art of portraiture, the Gallery offers an engaging way of approaching questions of culture, identity and nationhood.
