The images featured in the exhibition were chosen by the National Portrait Gallery, London, to show the range of people the Gallery celebrates as well as the array of great works and media in its Collection. The exhibition also serves to underscore the strong link between the United States and the United Kingdom, and celebrates national portrait galleries everywhere.
