About the National Portrait Gallery

The gallery houses portraits of historically important and famous British people, selected on the basis of the significance of the sitter, not that of the artist.

The collection includes photographs and caricatures as well as paintings, drawings and sculpture.

One of its best-known images is the Chandos portrait, the most famous portrait of William Shakespeare.
