The Leader podcast visits Roseberys Fine Art Auctioneers in south London to discover how artists in the Old Master period expressed themselves.

We’ll hear how creatives have revealed their individualism through the centuries with Lara L’vov-Basirov, Roseberys’ head of sale and specialist in Old Master, British and European Pictures.

It’s all part of getting inspiration for the Evening Standard Art Prize, which is back for 2023 and looking for entries with the theme of A Portrait of You - celebrating self-expression in sculpture, textiles, ceramics, glassware, jewellery or wood carving.

Twelve shortlisted artists will have their work exhibited in central London, plus a £5,000 cash prize and a bespoke fragrance courtesy of the competition’s sponsor, perfume brand Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle.

In this episode, you can also learn all about how to get involved - and what the judging panel will look for in the entries, with Evening Standard culture editor Nancy Durrant.

The competition is open to all artists, over the age of 18, excluding those who have had a solo exhibition at a public institution.

Deadline for entries is 15 June.
