Portrait Puzzle

Ruth Murray - Girl of 100 Epochs (2008)It's rare for a portrait to cause confusion over whether it should be vertical or horizontal, but Ruth Murray's Girl of 100 Epochs (2008) did just that. Two websites: one had this painting vertical, the other horizontal. I've checked with the Mall Galleries and have been assured its website is correct: horizontal. Ruth Murray was last year's De Laszlo winner with this painting. The Royal Society of Portrait Painters opens its annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London, on 7 May, admission £2.50, concessions £1.50. The winners of five awards for portraiture will be announced, include the £10,000 Ondaatje Prize and the £3,000 De Laszlo Prize. CLICK for more information about the society and its awards. Young artists seeking training check out the Bulldog Bursary.
