Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Howgate and Nairne, director of the National Portrait Gallery, team up in The Portrait Now, an informative and exciting international gathering of more than 80 portraits by contemporary artists. Diverse in media, style, and intent, the works include Alessandro Raho's realistic oil portrait of Dame Judi Dench and Eric Fischl's expressive double portrait of Joan Didion and her late husband, John Gregory Dunne, as well as paintings by such signature portraitists as Alex Katz, Elizabeth Peyton, Francesco Clemente, and Chuck Close and photographs by Malick Sidib\'e9, Zhang Huan, and Pinar Yola\'e7an.
