BP Portrait Award 2
When I posted news of the BP Portrait Award 2008 yesterday (CLICK) I forgot to mention that you could view the shortlisted entries on the National Portrait Gallery website. Click the title link, then click on the artists names to view their works. I've combined thumbnails of their paintings into a single graphic, from left to right:
Simon Davis - Amanda Smith at Vincent Avenue
Peiyuan Jiang - Untitled
Robert O'Brien - Hannah O'Brien
Craig Wylie - K.
My favourite is Craig Wylie's K: breathtaking detail and psychological depth. A real person. Superb.
