Andrew Tift’s portrait of Lucian Freud's first wife, Kitty Garman, walked away with the glory in this year’s edition of BP portrait award. The competition is annually organized by the National Portrait Gallery, London. All portraits that took part in the competition including the winning portraits are on display at the National Portrait Gallery, which ends on September 17, 2006.

The winning portrait of Andrew Trift is a triptych of Kitty Garman, who has already appeared in several painting of Lucian Freud. The most famous being the ‘Girl with White Dog.’ Andrew has been working for quite sometime in Kitty Garman’s gallery near Walsall. The winning triptych is among the numerous portraits that he had done on Kitty Garman for the gallery. The portrait is painted in acrylic on board.

Andrew was short-listed for the prize on four other occasions. He had earlier bagged the BP Travel Award in 1995. He takes away £25,000 and a commission worth £4,000 given by the National Portrait Gallery Trustees. The second prize was bagged by Rafael Rodriguez Cruz of Mexico. His winning portrait ‘Model 1’ is painted in oil on canvas on wooden board. Angela Reilly from Scotland bagged the third prize for ‘Self-Portrait’ painted in oil on canvas.
