James Lloyd

James Lloyd is one of Britain’s leading portrait painters; the only artist to have won both the BP Portrait Prize and the Ondaatje Portrait prize. Lloyd is firmly established in the field of portraiture and his determinedly independent and non-deferential approach has resulted in commissions including Her Majesty the Queen, Dame Maggie Smith, Sir Paul Smith, Lord Irvine, Sir Chris Patten and Kenneth Clarke.  This, Lloyd’s 3rd solo exhibition at Browse & Darby, demonstrates the artist’s extraordinary observational talent for beautifully crafted and layered paintings of the everyday and of the human figure.
