21 Portraits @ National Portrait Gallery

Familiar and unfamiliar were my reactions in approaching this set. Rick Amor is a prominent portraitist in Australia and the National Portrait Gallery has put on a charming small exhibition of 21 of his portraits in their entry gallery. On the walls are portraits I have seen in other locations and some I have never seen. There are portraits of people I am familiar with and people I have never heard of. There are painted richly coloured styles and light pencil sketches. There is only one female subject in the set.
