The annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters opened last Thursday at the Mall Galleries in London and continues until 21 May. One of the exhibitors is the young Bulldog Bursary winner David Caldwell. Awards include the £10,000 Ondaatje Prize and the £3,000 De Laszlo Foundation Award.

The Hayes Family by Toby Wiggins RP is an excellent painting not only of a family, but also of bygone days before idiot boxes and computers. Admission is £2.50, silver surfers £1.50 Coinciding with this exhibition is a debate on representations of childhood on Thursday 13 May at 6.30pm, admission £7, ss £5.
