Tom Phillips: The Portrait Works
Organised and toured by the National Portrait Gallery
Thu 8 Feb – Sat 10 Mar 1990
It is only recently that Tom Phillips has painted to commission and his sitters have included Iris Murdoch and Sir Claus Moser. The idea of a retrospective exhibition has inspired the artist to produce many new portraits which are presented in the context of his overall development.
The University of Warwick has recently commissioned a portrait of its first Chancellor, Lord Scarman, on his retirement and this portrait will be seen for the first time in the exhibition at the Mead Gallery.
