Portraits of Artists by Artists

Portraits of Artists by Artists

Following on from our last campaign of self-portraits on paper, Liss Llewellyn is delighted to present a new online exhibition of museum quality portraits of artists, by artists.

The exhibition includes a rare, tender portrait by Sir Stanley Spencer of his younger brother, Gilbert. This was completed in 1909, shortly after Stanley had begun his training at the Slade School of Fine Art, and shows a 17 year-old Gilbert in profile with the cherubic features that belied his teenage years.

Stanley Spencer also features as the subject of Douglas Percy Bliss’ Masterpieces in the Making. This series combined Bliss’ erudition, his skill as a watercolourist and his wit as a caricaturist. The scheme was to depict each master in his own style of painting and in their own typical studio setting. Eric Ravilious wrote to Bliss praising these ‘damn good drawings’, singling out the portraits of Gauguin and Van Gogh for commendation, and they are offered for sale here for the first time.
