We will take a journey through British history via portraits, starting with the fabulous Ditchley portrait of Queen Elizabeth I and ending with the stimulating work by contemporary artists such as Marc Quinn and Sam Taylor-Johnson.
The National Portrait Gallery is an ideal place to get to know great British personalities, to gain an understanding of why the portraits were selected and why these individuals were considered important at the time. It is also interesting to learn how the technique and purpose of portraiture and collecting have changed over time, reflecting the attitudes of today.
The visit is particularly atmospheric and romantic if done at night. Why not conclude with a glass of champagne in the fabulous rooftop restaurant?
