Last month I was delighted to receive a good response to the unveiling of my portrait of Dame Vivien Duffield at the National Portrait Gallery.  While continuing my commissioned work I have also given some time to starting a series of still life paintings, one of which is pictured below.

Portrait of Dame Vivien Duffield, Philanthropist

As part of the prize for winning the BP Portrait Award in 2003, Charlotte was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery to paint Dame Vivien Duffield.   Speaking about the painting Sandy Nairne, Director of the gallery said “it successfully captures Dame Vivien Duffield’s world. The books in the painting are literal depictions of her passions; they express aspects of her work such as the Opera, Ballet, Israel, Art and Literature”. Dame Vivien, daughter of Sir Charles Clore, has devoted her life to philanthropy and charitable giving with an estimated £100 million in endowments raised during her career and in 1988 was named as Benefactor of the Year by the National Art Collections Fund.
