BP Portrait Award

We went round the BP Portrait Award last night which I haven’t done for a while and was pleased to see the broad range of work and the fact that it is slightly more lightly hung than it used to be, more international and with more established artists.   I particularly admired the gentle, reflective winning portrait by Clara Drummond which holds it own in the space;  was interested to see the work of some hardy perennials of the Award, including Frances Borden, Lewis Chamberlain and Mark Shields;  and liked the austere portrait of Martin Chaffer standing in front of a map of London by Sopio Chkhikvadze.
