A portrait of a woman breastfeeding her baby by a Grimsby-born artist has won this year's BP Portrait Award.
Benjamin Sullivan, 40, was awarded first prize for Breech!, which depicts his wife Virginia nursing their eight-month-old daughter, Edith.
The judges said they were struck by the tenderness and intimacy of the oil painting, which showed the depth of the maternal bond, reminiscent of Madonna and Child portraits.
Sullivan receives a £30,000 prize and a commission worth £5,000 at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

An art exhibition, opening in Plymouth Combined Courts in Armada Way, is thought to be the first of its kind in a UK courthouse.
Organised by HHJ Paul Darlow, the resident judge, and HHJ Miranda Robertshaw, the designated family judge for Devon, it opens on 19 June, displaying work from painter Ann Chester King and seven students from Plymouth College of Art’s BA (Hons) Painting, Drawing & Printmaking degree.
The judges said: “All of us who work in the court service sees this exhibition as our chance to show the importance the criminal, family, civil and tribunal courts play in the Plymouth community.
"We hope as many people as possible will come to see the art on display. The enthusiasm with which the artists have embraced the project is truly humbling.”
