National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery opened in London in 1856 as the first dedicated portrait gallery in the world. The collection was housed in a number of buildings across London before moving to its current location on St. Martin’s Place off Trafalgar Square in Central London, adjoining the National Gallery, in 1896. Some of its more famous works include portraits of William Shakespeare, William Hogarth, and Sir Joshua Reynolds.
