Friendship Portraits

Today the National Portrait Gallery in London opened Friendship Portraits: Chantal Joffe and Ishbel Myerscough, a free display of collaborative paintings by these two artists. Shown is Ishbel Myerscough's Two Girls (1991) which depicts herself and Chantal at the start of their friendship at Glasgow School of Art. Girls? They look like a pair of hookers in their 40s. The Gallery has added this double portrait to its permanent collection. The display is in Rooms 41 and 41a (CLICK).
