A couple of years ago Frances Bell won the De Laszlo Prize for Best Portrait by an under 35 year old from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.  She’s a certainly a painter to keep one’s eye on.


She trained in Florence at Charles Cecil Studios where she has also taught sporadically.  This training means a focus on painting from life ‘sight-size’ in the tradition of the great portrait portrait painters in Britain in the 18th century, such as Raeburn and Lawrence.
