The Anonymous Widower

The National Portrait Gallery Was Quiet

There has been a lot of criticism of the new portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge. Here‘s the Independent’s view.

So I went to have a look this morning.

The National Portrait Gallery Was Quiet

The gallery wasn’t busy and I was able to see the portrait by myself just after ten.

It was alright I suppose, but it was the sort of painting, that was made for a biscuit tin or a chocolate box.  In some ways, it was too photographic, and as I like photographs for portraits I slipped into the Taylor Wessing Photgraphic Portrait Prize, to see some good ones.

I was not disappointed and the exhibition was well worth the two pound entrance.

As to Her Highness’s portrait, I’ll give a final verdict, when I see it on a tin.
