This is a portrait by James Lawrence Isherwood of the famous writer, Christopher Isherwood, whose works are in libraries all over the world.

On the reverse of the work, Isherwood has written “Chris Ish” and there is no doubt that he admired the author who shared his surname. This is a fine example of Isherwood’s portraiture, and the subject looks totally attentive, as though staring into a camera lens. Many different emotions are captured.

Achieved in an superb mix of brown, tans white and black, this large portrait is a great example of the artist at his controlled best. The painting, like many is Isherwood’s works, is unsigned.
