A portrait by Anthony Morris of BMC Patron Sir Chris Bonington will feature in next month’s Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition.
Sir Chris will be in the company of former Pakistan Cricket Captain Inzaman ul-Haq, Justice Secretary Jack Straw, Labour MP for Grimsby Austin Mitchell and ‘nice to see you, to see you nice’ Bruce Forsyth, amongst many others. Over 200 portraits by 100 artists will be hung in the exhibition, which is one of the year’s top art events.
To commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of “People’s Portraits”, a permanent exhibition by members of the Society on show at Girton College Cambridge, 12 works from this unique collection, including three new additions, will be displayed.
Since 1891 the Society has been devoted exclusively to the art and development of portrait painting, which is a fascinating barometer of current trends and holds a mirror up to nature in reflecting life in contemporary Britain.
The exhibition runs from 6th to 21st May.
Venue: The Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1.
Opening hours: Daily 10am – 5pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays until 7pm.
Admission: £2.50, Concessions £1.50.
