The Archibald Prize for portraiture is one of Australia’s oldest and most talked about art awards. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists. Since its inception in 1921, the prize has been awarded to some of Australia’s most important artists, including George Lambert, William Dobell, Brett Whiteley and John Olsen.
Sofitel Wentworth Sydney has been the official hotel partner of the Archibald Prize since 2005, and is an ongoing and proud supporter of the Art Gallery of New South Wales as a partnership that reflects Sofitel’s spirit of l’art de vivre.
