The new Guide to the National Portrait Gallery provides contextual and thematic information together with interesting and quirky facts and stories behind the portraits.
Organised chronologically, the Guide reflects as far as possible the actual layout of the Gallery. Large full-colour images focus on the Gallery’s highlights, while accessible bite-sized texts about the works may be read easily while on the move in the Gallery.
Although intended for use within the Gallery, the Guide will also be helpful when planning for future visits.
