BP Portrait 2014

The National Portrait Gallery in London has released the names of the three artists shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award 2014, now worth £30,000 to the winner plus a £5,000 commission. The three artists are Thomas Ganter from Frankfurt, Germany, Brooklyn-based David Jon Kassan from Little Rock, Arkansas, USA, and Richard Twose based in Bath, England. Shown is David Jon Kassan's Letter to my Mom (the Hebrew inscription). She didn't want her portrait painted and epitomises the grumpy old lady, so different from smiling models. The winner will be announced on 24 June. The free exhibition opens on 26 June (CLICK).
