Kelly Holmes at NPG
Just in time for the London Olympics, the National Portrait Gallery in London has unveiled this portrait of double-gold-winning Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes (2012) painted by Craig Wylie. He won the commission as part of the First Prize BP Portrait Award 2008. It's a sombre, reflective portrait which fails to capture Dame Kelly's vibrant personality. Craig worked from his own photos of her, maybe a mistake. You'll find the portrait in the Lerner Galleries, Room 36. And don't forget the free BP Portrait Award exhibition, one of the handful of London 2012 Festival shows worth visiting (CLICK).
