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.
The four shortlisted artists this year are Aleah Chapin for Auntie, Ignacio Estudillo for El Abuelo (Augusta Estudillo), Alan Coulson for Richie Culver and, in the Young Artist Award category, Jamie Routley for Tony Lewis. Also on show is the work of the BP Travel Award 2011 winner Jo Fraser.
