Rowling Portrait Unveiled
The author, whose children's books have inspired a hugely-successful series of Hollywood movies, is thrilled by the tribute, which shows her sitting at a table and symbolises her dual role as a mother and writer.
SANDY NAIRN, director of the National Portrait Gallery says, "This is a captivating portrait with more than a touch of magic. JK Rowling is delightfully portrayed with delicacy and charm."
The Gallery commissioned artist STUART PEARSON to capture Rowling's likeness.
