Campion Hall unveils new portrait by Benjamin Sullivan

Campion Hall was pleased to unveil a new portrait by Benjamin Sullivan, the noted artist, on the 23rd December. Sullivan's other works in Oxford include the celebrated 'All Souls Triptych', and beyond Oxford his work has been regularly exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy.

Sullivan is the recipient of several prestigious prizes, such as the BP Portrait Award and the Carroll Foundation Award. Among his most recent subjects is Her Majesty the Queen, in a well-received portrait commissioned for the RAF Club's 100th Anniversary.

At Campion Hall, Sullivan's subject was the Rev'd Dr James Hanvey SJ, who recently stepped down from his post as Master. Sullivan's portrait now hangs in the Refectory alongside those of other past Masters, including a significant portrait of Martin Darcy, SJ, by Augustus John.

The artist tweeted about the unveiling and wrote on his Facebook page: "last unveiling of the year at Campion Hall! Many thanks to the Society of Jesus for such a hospitable stay."
