Allan Ramsay, Royal Society of Portrait Painters 2012

Allan1Allan Ramsay will be exhibiting a painting at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibition next month, on invitation by Melissa Scott-Miller RP.

The portrait is a study of Pauline, a part-time student at Heatherleys. She has modelled for Allan regularly over the course of the past year, resulting in a series of works.

The pose was based on Chardin’s ‘The Young School Mistress’, a favourite painting of Allan’s.  It is a work that he has returned to time and again on visits to the NationalGallery, and a source of great inspiration to him.
