Old favourites shine, new arrivals stun: Reynolds’ lofty Polynesian youth “Mai”, Shirin Neshat’s “Malala” adorned in Arabic script, Michael Armitage’s flamboyant tapestry starring Hackney dustmen. The NPG was founded to collect portraits for “the person represented rather than the merit of the artist”, but director Nicholas Cullinan’s judicious acquisitions square that circle — biography and great art coexist here. As museums are increasingly, devastatingly, driven by politics (look no further than this year’s Tate Britain rehang), the NPG is a beacon, celebrating the individual and, in beautifully open, democratic displays, the connections between us. David Hockney’s current show (to January 21) is pure joy.

Art lovers should head over to the Palette Art Gallery in New Delhi to witness their ongoing art exhibition which is titled, Paradise Regained. This exhibition showcases artworks from several notable artists and highlights on landscapes that have been mined or re-envisioned with fantasy. Each piece has a narrative of its own, which often touches an emotional chord with the viewer.

Curator of the exhibition and art critic Uma Nair mentions, “Here are a suite of paintings that have been created in the solitude of artist studios. They reflect robust imagination as well as the beauty of nature’s rhythms according to a specific time, climate and season. These intricate paintings speak to the most pressing themes of contemporary life: beauty and kindness, cruelty and loneliness, contentment, and even loss. But they also call attention to the quiet moments of life and the knowledge that all disturbances eventually calm.”
