Essay by Sarah Dunant
The BP Portrait Award, now in its twentieth year, is a popular fixture on the summer calendar, and is the leading showcase for artists throughout the world specialising in portraiture.
The catalogue features over sixty works from an international list of artists, which display a diverse range of styles and painterly techniques. Sarah Dunant’s insightful essay explores how artists attempt to reveal the inner workings of the human form, which has remained a key element in portraiture from the Renaissance to the present day.
