Camila Portrait

Dean Marsh - Camila Batmanghelidjh (2009)This exquisitely detailed portrait of Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh is the latest painting to go on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London. It was painted by Dean Marsh, who won first prize in NPG's BP Portrait Award 2005. His commission to paint the Iranian-born psychotherapist and social reformer was part of the award.
