From Henry VIII via Toulouse Lautrec, Rasputin to President Lincoln, no detail has been spared - from composition to lighting, and of course style and dress – on this new display that has been five years in the making between the Gallery’s former director and photographer John Swannell.
Somewhere between an experiment in identity and a capricious birthday present, this new display will transport you through time as Sir Roy Strong reinvents himself and recreates famous portraits in the National Portrait Gallery collection.
