The big exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery are always worth your time. At the beginning of 2017 I was utterly blown away by Picasso Portraits – a vast exhibition that charted – through this particular type of painting – the artistic development of one of the greatest painters of all time. It was easily the best exhibition I saw that year.

Cézanne Portraits, which is open until February 11th,  is a much more understated collection – his artistic techniques did not change as dramatically as his peer’s did – but it is no less impressive. On inspection, his portraits have the same texture and depth as his famed landscapes, and furthermore give us a glimpse into his personal relationships – his wife Hortense and son Paul feature prominently. Don’t sleep on it.
