See the BP Portrait Prize exhibition

Your author dropped in to the National Portrait Gallery last week for the annual pilgrimage to stare at the portraits of the BP Portrait Prize exhibition. The exhibition - which has been on since June and only has another couple of weeks to run - is always a highlight, particularly as its entries are drawn from open competition and by living artists, and throw up some interesting stories as a result.

We are told that the exhibition is now in its 34th year at the National Portrait Gallery, and this year's £30,000 prize was won by South African-born artist Susanne du Toit, who submitted a portrait of her eldest son Pieter.

Entry is free, donations requested. For more, see http://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/exhibitions/bp-portrait-award-2013/the-exhibition.php
