Philip Pearlstein

The recent death of Philip Pearlstein reminded me that we acquired a portrait by him of the great postwar UN figure, Brian Urquart at the NPG – I think while I was still there. I couldn’t remember how it came about and see from the NPG’s website that it was a commission organised by Sir John Weston, who had himself been ambassador to the UN. Good that his work is represented.
