Nicky Philipps on BBC Radio 4 Today, Wednesday 11th February
Listen to Nicky Philipps and Richard Ormand, curator of Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends discuss the importance of Sargent and what makes him stand out from his contemporaries at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b051s31n. Discussion begins 02:54:20.
John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was undoubtedly one of the greatest portrait painters of his generation. Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, he was closely connected to many of the other leading artists, writers, actors and musicians of his time. This major exhibition of over seventy portraits spans Sargent's time in London, Paris and Boston as well as his travels in the Italian and English countryside.

National Portrait Gallery
Nicky Philipps's portrait of Simon Weston is hanging in the National Portrait Gallery. The painting was the first portrait to be commissioned by the NPG via a public vote.
The BBC's 'The One Show' featured 12 worthy nominees, which included Michael Palin, Dame Doreen Lawrence, neuroscientist Colin Blakemore and Clive Stafford Smith, amongst others.
Simon Weston won the public vote and the 'sittings' were filmed by The BBC for 'The People's Portrait', which aired on Sunday, 13th April. The portrait was painted entirely from life and was unveiled to great acclaim at the NPG on March, 20th.
