Work by Jack Haslam has been selected from over 1,000 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading portrait artists. The Royal Society of Portrait Painters hold an annual open submission exhibition in central London each year.
Graced by portraits of royalty, celebrities, academics, mothers, daughters, fathers and sons, the exhibition is a feature of the social calendar.
This year about half of the work will be by eminent Members of the Society and half by emerging artists selected through the open submission.
With some 200 portraits on show this is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of recent portraits in the country with a special section on self-portraiture.
This year’s exhibition will be on display at the Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between 8 and 23 May 2014
The Royal Society of Portrait Painters have many prizes and awards available to exhibitors, including the £10,000 Ondaatje Prize for Portraiture and the £3,000 de Laszlo Foundation Award.
