Supporting the art of portraiture…
Commission a portrait the enjoyable and easy way
If you are thinking of commissioning a portrait, you have come to the right place.
Members of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters are the best and most reliable portrait painters who have been elected for the excellence of their work over a period of time.
The cost of a portrait
Unsurprisingly, fees can be substantial rising to nearly £100,000. It is worth noting, however, that their starting point can be less than £1,000.
Commissioning a portrait
The process is enjoyable and easy. Good portraits are the product of positive relationships and, for the sitter, being part of the creative process can be very rewarding. ‘The process is worth as much as the portrait itelf’ said one client who had particularly enjoyed the sittings and relationship with the artist.
We provide a consultant to look after you from the initial thought, through finding the right artist, to the final work.
‘The consultant’s enormous skill at identifying great talent and understanding precisely what her clients need is a real and rare gift’. -Camilla Borge, series of portraits for the University of Oxford.
‘We made a commission through the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and it was one of the best decisions ever. We have something on the wall that we’ll treasure forever; I highly recommend it.’ -Imogen, two paintings of family members.
