The BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery showcases outstanding and innovative new portraits from around the world. From informal and personal studies of friends and family to revealing paintings of famous faces, the exhibition features a variety of styles and approaches to the contemporary painted portrait. The BP Portrait Award is the most prestigious international portrait painting competition and the popular exhibition continues to be one of the highlights of the annual art calendar.

Artists currently showing work at the BP Portrait Award will be visiting Cass Art stores throughout August to talk about their work, inspiration, painting techniques and answer all your portraiture questions. All Meet the Artists sessions are free so drop by to meet the people behind the paintings.
