BP Portrait Award 2012

This year's BP Portrait Award exhibition features 55 painted portraits, shortlisted from 2,187 international entries.

An eclectic treasure trove of the very best practice in contemporary portrait painting, the show puts famous faces shoulder to shoulder with personal studies of friends and family.
