100,000 portraits digitised for the nation

May 2012The National Portrait Gallery has recently digitised its 100,000th portrait. This significant achievement would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication from all staff involved, past and present, both within the Digitisation team and across the Gallery.

The 100,000th portrait to be scanned by the Digitisation team was a signed, limited edition print of Jimmy Page, photographed in 2009 by Ross Halfin and recently donated to the Gallery by Dave Brolan on behalf of the legendary guitarist. The photograph forms part of a limited edition portfolio of five images of the rock star signed by the photographers and the sitter. Photographs of Page whilst performing with Led Zeppelin, known at the time as ‘the biggest band in the world’, by Jorgen Angel in Copenhagen in 1970, Dick Barnatt at Earls Court Arena in 1975, Neal Preston at Chicago Stadium in 1977 and Baron Wolman at Oakland Coliseum, California in 1977 complete the portfolio.
