The National Portrait Gallery is an art gallery primarily located in London but with various satellite outstations located elsewhere in the UK. It houses portraits of historically important and famous British people, selected on the basis of the significance of the sitter.

Around 1,400 portraits are on display at the Gallery in London throughout the year, a number of  whom are part of humanist heritage. Many portraits on this site are provided courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery.
