Jonathan Yeo: PortraitsKevin Spacey is portrayed in character as Richard III and Damien Hirst as dark overlord of the Contemporary Art scene in Jonathan Yeo Portraits, a free exhibition which gives an overview of one of the most highly regarded portrait painters working in Britain today. A regular contributor to the National Portrait Gallery's BP Portrait Award, Yeo gets his first solo exhibition at the gallery this September. The artist, who was commissioned by the gallery to paint a portrait of broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson in 2010, has portrayed well-known figures in the world of culture, media and politics, including Model Erin O'Connor, Rupert Murdoch and artist Greyson Perry who are displayed here alongside private studies of the artist's family and friends.

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.
