Publisher's description: The BP Portrait Award is the world's leading showcase for painters working in portraiture. This revised and updated edition of the highly successful 500 Portraits, published in 2011, brings together more than 500 of these portraits to cover 25 years of the Award. An international list of artists, including Thomas Ganter, David Jon Kassan, Ignacio Estudillo and Annalisa Avancini, whose work reflects a diverse range of approaches from the immaculately photo-realistic to the highly expressionistic, is gathered here. The book reproduces all National Portrait Gallery-commissioned portraits by the competition finalists, including portraits of Helen Mirren by Ishbel Myerscough, Paul Smith by James Lloyd, J.K. Rowling by Stuart Pearson Wright and Harold Pinter by Justin Mortimer, plus a selection of works by the Travel Award winners. This book celebrates our enduring fascination with different human faces.
