DESCRIPTION

The Art Fund completes its UK tour of Queen and Country with a four month display at the prestigious National Portrait Gallery which holds the most extensive collection of portraits in the world.

The display will open on the 7th anniversary of British troops entering Iraq and will close in July to coincide with the 1st anniversary of the withdrawal from Iraq.

A Queen and Country book produced by the British Council in association with The Art Fund, Imperial War Museum and Manchester International Festival will be published as the display opens at the National Portrait Gallery.
