Craig’ London blog> Craig’s National Portrait Gallery review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

This major new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery will explore the creative encounters that occur between the artist and their sitters, by looking at masterworks from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

By collecting together some exquisite observational drawings by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Holbein, Rubens and Rembrandt, the exhibition will celebrate the best of portrait drawing from life, during a time of extraordinary artistic ingenuity.
