UNVEILING OF LORD CARRINGTON PORTRAIT AT THE HOUSE OF LORDS

April 8th, 2015

The Palace of Westminster contacted me to do a portrait of Lord Carrington which I worked on for quite a sizeable portion of last year. It’s set in his manor house in Buckinghamshire and I liked the atmospheric lighting of the space, it’s proportions and link to his ancestry. It was unveiled in February at the House of Lords and it seemed to go down very well. One Lord came up and complimented me and said his son ran an art gallery in a very matter of fact way, as if it was a small Cornish gallery in Penzance…”Yes, it’s called White Cube, have you heard of it ?” Said Lord Jopling.

I’ve also added a drawing of Lord Carrington which I made before I started the painting.

The Parliamentary Arts Committee also commissioned 4 films to accompany the portrait which explain it in much more detail and these are listed below.
