An unusual portrait of David Bowie as the Elephant Man is exhibited in the UK for the first time in Derek Boshier: Imaginary Portraits, a free National Portrait Gallery exhibition featuring 10 works from the artist's 'imaginary portraits' series. The oil-on-canvas portrait of Bowie was painted in New York in 1980 while he was rehearsing for his role in Bernard Pomerance's play The Elephant Man at the city's Booth Theatre. It's one of ten contemporary works by the artist, widely regarded as one of the founders of Pop Art in the early 1960s, in a display which explores the role of imagination in making portraits, focusing on Boshier's return to the medium of paint, and featuring drawings produced during the artist's tenure as a professor at the University of Houston in Texas.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
