This re-designed and fully updated and expanded edition of the National Portrait Gallery's Complete Illustrated Catalogue is a comprehensive listing of every painting, drawing, miniature, print, photograph and sculpture in the main collection.
From its humble beginnings in 1856, when the Gallery owned 70 portraits, the collection has grown to include more than 10,000 likenesses in its main collection of the greatest men and women in British history. These figures of past and present are supplemented by more than a third of a million portraits in the Gallery's archives.
The culmination of years of research, this exhaustive and authoritative catalogue includes over 10,500 entries, organised alphabetically by sitter and provides the title, date, attribution, media and acquisition details for every work. Portraits of the same subject by different artists and at different times can be compared.
An indispensable reference tool for scholars, researchers, historians and art historians, with over 8,000 illustrations, this catalogue now forms the largest printed survey of British portraiture in existence, a miniature National Portrait Gallery in itself.
