Portraits by Picasso, Cezanne, Hockney and Freud are now on display at a free exhibition at Elephant and Castle until February.
The exhibition, entitled Close: Drawn Portraits, spans 200 years of portraiture and features work from household names alongside contemporary images from new talent – and portraits of residents from Elephant and Castle.
Among the contemporary artists showcased are Clifton Wright, who is supported by Intoart, a charity that works with artists with learning disabilities, and Jessica Voorsanger, who has captured a group of women who knit for peace at the Peabody community hall nearby.
The free exhibition is held at Drawing Room, the only public and non-profit gallery in the UK and Europe dedicated to contemporary drawing.
Close: Drawn Portraits is on display at Drawing Room, 1-27 Rodney Place, SE17 1PP until February 3. Entry is free.
