ALFRED KINGSLEY LAWRENCE, RA, RP (1893-1976)
SWAGGER PORTRAIT PAINTER
Exhibition as part of stand A4, Winter Art and Antiques Fair, Olympia
(1 -5 November 2017)
Alfred Kingsley Lawrence ranks amongst the most stylish and sought-after British society portrait painters of the early to mid twentieth century. His work in pastel in particular has something of the elegance of Sargent or Boldini and his deft handling of this intense medium is the equal of his fellow Academician Eric Kennington. Somewhat neglected today, Lawrence upheld the best standards in academic art, winning the prestigious Rome Scholarship in 1923 and excelling as a muralist in locations such as the Bank of England and the Palace of Westminster. Part of our stand at Olympia in November will be dedicated to Lawrence with a display of his portrait pastels, landscapes, studies and oil sketches. A printed brochure with som of the highlights of this show is available on request.
