The National Portrait Gallery is unique in being both for, and about, people. From Katherine Parr to Martin Parr, we serve as the nation’s family album, inviting everyone to meet the people who have made, and are making, Britain what it is today.

Collections and Conservation
The National Portrait Gallery holds the most extensive collection of portraits in the world. The Gallery's Conservation Department performs one of the Gallery's core functions, the long-term preservation of all Collection items, to make them accessible now and in future.
The Gallery places learning at its heart and is a national destination for learning through portraiture. Learning opportunities are available for all levels of interest, experience and expertise and are created on-site, off-site and online to engage audiences locally, regionally and nationally.
Research is fundamental to the Gallery’s work whether through large projects working in partnership with other organisations, research based on its own collections, or as a facilitator of research into portraiture by scholars from outside. The Gallery is recognised as an Independent Research Organisation by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
