Recently the people of Great Britain helped to save a major self-portrait by 17th century master artist Anthony van Dyck from being sold abroad. The portrait will now stay in the UK and to celebrate this it is going on tour throughout the UK.
One of its tour venues is Manchester Art Gallery which is organising an exhibition around it focussing on self-portraiture throughout the centuries. I am honoured that my painting ‘Pleating Time’ will be included in this exhibition which will also feature works from Hogarth, Angelica Kauffman and Grayson Perry.
