Artist Humphrey Ocean RA, whose portrait of Sir Julian Bullard features in Terms of Engagement, won the National Portrait Gallery’s annual Portrait Prize in 1982 and has undertaken several commissions for the NPG since, including Sir Paul McCartney, 1983, and Philip Larkin, 1984. He joins our Director, Nicola Kalinsky, to discuss his own practice, and the relationship between artist, sitter and the individual or institution commissioning a portrait.
