The monumental painting, which measures six feet by six feet, was painted by Jonathan Yeo. “It is hard to imagine a greater honor than painting one of the finest actors of our age for one of the most important institutions in the world,” said Yeo. “It is also a great pleasure to continue this creative collaboration with Kevin, which we began at London’s National Portrait Gallery; this time bringing a new work to his home soil in the U.S.”
