Archibald prize 2020: David Marr, Magda Szubanski, Annabel Crabb and more – in pictures


One of Australia’s most prominent art prizes, the $100,000 Archibald prize – which will be announced on 25 September – is awarded each year to the best portrait of a person ‘distinguished in art, letters, science or politics’ painted by an Australian resident. Gender parity has been a topic of interest in the past; among this year’s batch of 55 finalists (some of which feature more than one sitter), 36 sitters are male and 22 female. Of the 56 artists who painted them, 25 are women. Below is just a selection of this year’s finalists; you can view the full group at the Art Gallery of NSW website
