Portrait of the author
Last summer I finally ‘did’ the whole National Portrait Gallery one afternoon. By the end of it my legs were absolutely aching but it was well worth it. I particularly loved seeing the original portraits of authors that I’ve come across in biographies or on frontispieces in the past. If the idea of that appeals to you, then you should check out the writers and poets themed tour the National Portrait Gallery is running tomorrow, Friday 20th July, organized by London Cultureseekers Group. Whether you’re interested in the history and sitters or on the style of the painting itself, there’s a guide for each group. Details here.
