Take a look at our incredible moving portrait of Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore.

Pottermore has envisioned what Albus Dumbledore’s official Hogwarts portrait would look like, with the help of artist Jessica Roux.

Hogwarts is well known for its many magical portraits, with each painting embodying the character and personality of its subject. Albus Dumbledore’s portrait is particularly special, and is there to warmly congratulate Harry right at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

We’ve always wanted an Albus Dumbledore portrait of our own, so here he is for your enjoyment. Feel free to peruse his desk, have a look at his book collection and say hello to Fawkes the phoenix.
