From the National Portrait Gallery Facebook page:
Congratulations to Miriam Escofet, winner of the BP Portrait Award 2018 for An Angel at my Table, a portrait of her mother.
Judge, Rosie Millard said, ‘The crisp tablecloth and china are rendered so beautifully – and then you see that one of the plates and a winged sculpture on the table appear to be moving which adds a surreal quality to the portrait. It is also a very sensitive depiction of an elderly sitter.’
You can see the portrait, and all selected paintings, in the BP Portrait Award 2018 exhibition, open from Thursday.
