The Pillar Portrait is travelling to Korea as reported by iNews.
The National Museum of Korea exhibition, which opens on Friday, features famous works from the NPG’s permanent collection that have not been shown outside of the UK since their acquisition, including Sir Anthony van Dyck’s last self-portrait.
The 78 works on show at the first major exhibition dedicated to Western Portraiture in Seoul include portraits of Charles Dickens, the Brontë sisters, Isaac Newton, David Beckham and Malala Yousafzai, together with the first picture to enter the Gallery’s Collection, the Chandos portrait of Shakespeare.

The video's landscape (as shot by British filmmaker Will Warr) would be reminiscent of the untamed countryside that Charlotte Bronte describes in "Wuthering Heights," except that the video is so chock-full of love that it can't be gloomy. (Hanna Claeson)
Plumas atómicas (México) lists several women writers who had to use pseudonyms.
