Gordon Stuart, 1924-2015

Painter Gordon Stuart died today at the age of 91.  His portrait of my father hangs in - or at least is owned by - the National Portrait Gallery.  Among others, he also painted Kingsley Amis, Dylan Thomas, Beryl Bainbridge, and Thomas Beecham. Below is a detail of one of his preliminary sketches for the portrait of Dad.
