DESCRIPTION

To complement The First Actresses, this display showcases portraits of contemporary actresses from the Gallery’s Collection. Including paintings of Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, and photographs of Vanessa Redgrave and newcomer Anna Popplewell, the display highlights the talent and achievement of British women currently performing in theatre, television and film, all of whom owe a debt to the pioneering first actresses.
