Visitors' Choice

No, it isn't a photo, but an oil painting by Prague artist Jan Makulka of Czech documentary film-maker Jakub Wagner. It gained the most votes from visitors to the National Portrait Gallery's BP Portrait Award 2011 exhibition, which closes tomorrow. The show then goes on tour to Wolverhampton and Aberdeen. Over 300,000 people visited the exhibition in London; a record 28,532 cast votes between 16 June and 4 September and 2,280 voted for Makulka's painting.
