Iain Pears Synopsis: In The Portrait by Iain Pears, an art critic travels to a remote island off Brittany to sit for a portrait painted by a long-time friend, a talented but troubled artist who has been living in self-imposed exile. The painter recalls their years of friendship, the gift of the critic’s patronage, and his callous betrayals. As he struggles to capture the character of the man, as well as his image, on canvas, it becomes clear that there is much more than a portrait at stake.
