Luc Tuymans: Glasses"Glasses bring a kind of distortion to the face," says Antwerp-based artist, Luc Tuymans, whose paintings of spectacle wearing sitters go on display at National Portrait Gallery from autumn 2016. Tuymans, who first came to our attention with his 2004 retrospective at Tate Modern has a larger exhibition of his works at the Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp at the same time. And this free NPG display opens ahead of Intrigue: James Ensor by Luc Tuymans at the Royal Academy of Arts (29 October 2016 - 29 January 2017) in which the artist curates an exhibition of the work of the great Belgian expressionist painter.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
