someone’s grandpa

Forgive me if I didn’t recognize this probably famous Englishman, but I call this portrait “Someone’s Proper Grandpa” on view at the National Portrait Gallery in London. A gem of a museum: not too big, not too small –  the place is just right. Organized by centuries, the main floor, contemporary portraits, was my favorite – and especially the series by Alex Katz. Bold, colorful, casually-cool close-ups are the trademarks of this series – one that graphically focuses on the subject and nothing else.

So next time you’re over the pond, do visit this portrait delight. And be sure to stop by the cafe on the top floor: a more than splendid view of the city.
