Product Description

A very distinctive figurative self-portrait by the Saatchi acclaimed South West artist Jo Beer.

The painting, which is reminiscent of Lucien Freud’s style, features herself lying naked on the bed , her face closest to the viewer. She puts special emphasis on the hands, making them look as if they have been abstractedly sculpted. The oil painting is on a box framed canvas, which means it does not require framing to exhibit it on aa wall. It is titled and signed on the wood stretcher strut. Condition is extremely good.

Jo Beer is one of the most exciting artists in the South West of England. Her portraits, especially of famous people, are highly sought after, and she has a long waiting list on commissioned work. She studied under Vincent Wilson (Newlyn Art Movement) but is largely self-taught. She has been twice featured in Sky Art's Portrait Artist of the Year, with her painting from the first series (Not Pretty But Pretty Honest) being chosen as one of the images used over and over, in the installation piece of a huge Mona Lisa on Clapham Common, London, which remained in situ for some months. For the current series (2016 but aired 2017) she had to paint actress Parminder Nagra (Bend it like Beckham). Parminder chose her portrait to take back to Los Angeles with her.

“Painting is a joy, I cannot think of a better way to spend solitary time”
