Archibald prize 2021: Grace Tame, Ben Quilty, Eryn Jean Norvill and more – in pictures

The 52 finalists of this year’s Archibald prize were revealed at the Art Gallery of NSW on Thursday morning – the first batch in the prize’s 100-year history to achieve gender parity among the artists. A painting of Kate Ceberano by Kathrin Longhurst took home the coveted packing room prize.

On 4 June, the winning painting will be announced, which comes with a $100,000 prize, and will be awarded to the best portrait of a person ‘distinguished in art, letters, science or politics’ painted by an Australian resident. Below is a selection of this year’s finalists. You can view the full group at the Art Gallery of NSW website.
