The National Portrait Gallery holds the most extensive and prestigious collection of portraits in the world, with over 350,000 works. From the much-loved Tudor collection to contemporary photography, the collection focuses on the men and women who have made - and are making - Britain what is it today, from kings, queens, artists and authors, to musicians, actors, scientists and politicians.
We represent and license significant works from other institutions and archives, including the National Trust’s portraiture collection and the Jane Bown archive.
