It feels relatively odd at this time in June not to be organizing to pay a visit to the annual aggressive exhibition of paintings by modern day portrait painters at the Countrywide Portrait
Gallery. But that Gallery has been closed for some time and we never know what is actually going on to that exhibition.

Nevertheless, back again in 2018, a range of those British artists who have exhibited at that exhibition (which experienced
turn into an increasingly worldwide exhibition of present-day portraiture) mixed with other prominent modern day portrait painters in the United kingdom to make a brand new team – purely to develop a system for the mutual guidance and promotion of British portrait painters. 

I was glad to see this happen as I might started to feel that it was pretty incongruous that the Countrywide Portrait Gallery now picked fewer than 50 percent the do the job for this prestigious exhibition from portrait painters based mostly in Britain!

Which is how – post pandemic – you can now see an exhibition of superb modern portrait paintings by fantastic present-day portrait painters this week in Brixton.

Present-day British Portrait Painters

This is how the CBPP explain themselves – with my added ‘bold’ to spotlight the
crucial points.

There are possibly as numerous ways to paint as there are artists, so
there is no “right way to paint”. If there was there would under no circumstances have been
a Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Picasso or Hockney. So we never want to be
prescriptive about the way you generate your artwork, for us the concluded
final result is largely all that issues.
What we do want, is to depict the most effective in modern British
portraiture and inspire the practitioners of it
, as they discover this captivating and endlessly intriguing topic. To
paint a portrait is to take into consideration the human situation and to reflect on
our possess existence, it is deeply own and as various and enjoyable as the
folks we paint and the painters that paint them!

Key factors about the CBPP Team are as follows

  • a area to 
    • showcase some of the best British practitioners of portrait painting 
    • study and help a single one more in what we do. 
  • primarily specialist painters 
  • total membership of the team is by invitation
  • customers are invited purely on the quality of their work and their dedication
    to portraiture. 
  • at this time there is no most selection of users
  • we are aiming to be as democratic as we can be”.
  • their pointers for membership
I can glimpse through their list of member artists and see pretty many of the names of those who I would surely regard as
leading modern portrait artists in the Uk – many of whom I have satisfied right before and
who have formerly showcased on this blog in my protection of open up portrait
competitions/exhibitions more than the past 10 years and additional. 

These consist of:

I am loving the way that they are NOT listing artists alphabetically by surnames. As just one who has put in her overall daily life with a surname in the vicinity of the close of the alphabet this feels some thing like redemption. As an alternative they’re listing alphabetically on first names! 🙂

CBPP Exhibition 

This is a great quick video clip of their exhibition
– which is perfectly worthy of viewing and I’m sure
will encourage a lot of folks to go and just take a glance at their exhibition. Additional artwork societies and artwork groups would profit from doing furthermore.

You can also see function by the artists by using

  • a Gallery web page of photographs of artwork by the artists – I am unclear no matter whether these are representative or types in the demonstrate. My other comment would be that it truly is carrying out an superb job of exhibiting us the center of portrait format portraits – and cutting off their heads on my Macbook Air! Probably there is certainly a need to have to rethink of the measurement and format of images for the slideshow – to services desk/laptop as well as cellular platforms?
  • various virtual exhibitions on the web page
