Simon Schama's The Face Of BritainFive displays exploring the development, character and meanings of British portraiture, created with historian Simon Schama and the BBC, coincide with the broadcast of a five-part TV series on BBC Two and the publication of an accompanying book. Arranged by theme: power, love, fame, people and self, the free Face of Britain display positions Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Thatcher alongside Elizabeth I to reflect power. A Lewis Carroll portrait of Alice Liddell speaks of love. And all together tell the story of the British from the Tudors to the present day.

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.
