Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.

The collections of the National Portrait Gallery, which consist of more than 11,000 paintings, sculptures and works on paper and over a quarter of a million photographs, provide a fascinating commentary on British history and culture, addressing questions of identity and achievement and promoting engagement with portraiture in all media. With an introduction from the Gallery’s Director, this book provides an insight into the most extensive collection of portraits in the world and the influential sitters and artists within it, from the remarkable survivors of the Tudor period to the familiar faces of our own time.

100 Portraits presents a selection of images of significant individuals who have shaped the last four centuries of British life, from Anne Boleyn to David Beckham, from William Shakespeare to J.K. Rowling, portrayed by artists as diverse as Joshua Reynolds, Andy Warhol and Ida Kar. Each image is accompanied by an extended caption with key information on the sitter and the artist.
