Artist’s slashed portrait on display

A SELF-PORTRAIT defaced by the artist after an onlooker called it “flattering” is going on display at the National Portrait Gallery complete with slash marks.

Scottish artist Craigie Aitchison cut the portrait after a visitor to his studio said the painting made him look good. But he was later persuaded to allow a partial restoration.
