BP Portrait Winner

Back in April I posted these two paintings shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award 2013 (CLICK). So it's just a matter of who won first and who came second. South-African born Susanne du Toit won the top prize of £30,000 for her portrait of her 35-year-old son Pieter. John Devane won the second prize of £10,000 for his painting The Uncertain Time, which portrays his three children: Lucy, Laura and Louis. Owen Normand won the £7,000 Young Artist Award (CLICK). The BP Portrait Award exhibition of 55 best entries opens at the National Portrait Gallery in London on 20 June, admission free (CLICK).
