Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year Heats, 5 – 12 April

The Wallace Collection is very happy to announce that we will be holding the London heats for the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year! As home to some of the greatest portraits in the world, the Wallace Collection is the perfect place to showcase new talent. The heats will be held on Wednesday 5 – Wednesday 12 April and we hope our visitors will take the opportunity to come and browse the entrants in the intimate setting of the Courtyard of Hertford House.

The competition will also be broadcast on Sky Arts in 2018. Unfortunately, to facilitate the heats the Wallace Restaurant will be closed from Monday 3 to Wednesday 12 April and we do apologise for any inconvenience. A range of cafés and restaurants can be found in the neighbouring streets, including Marylebone High Street and Baker Street.
