Hidden Gems Season Two: Portrait of an Artist

Most of our Liss Llewellyn’s projects in the last thirty years have involved working directly with artists studios – here, amongst the hundreds of works that have lain undisturbed, often hardly seen since the day they were created, images would occasionally stand out – often modest in size and not obviously works of importance, a scrap of paper would record the intense introspective self-gaze of an artist,  or a moment of intimacy that suggests the artist was in love with his subject – sous le charme – be it his or her future husband or wife,  model or children. After thirty years of assembling such works Liss Llewellyn will, in 2021, be unveiling an ambitious  exhibition and publication  – Portrait of an Artist – which will bring together a remarkable group of works which have in common one quality – the ability to transport the viewer momentarily back into the artist’s milieu.  

The works put online here for the first time are intended as a preview of our forthcoming initiative.
