Nigerian NippyIsherwood is well known for his Wigan scenes, but he also did many portraits and figures whilst on his travels around Great Britain.
This lovely painting was created by Isherwood with great care and attention to detail, the title and another signature can be clearly seen on the rear of the painting along with the date the painting was done, 1962.

The vibrant colours used in this Isherwood are amazing, green, blue, white, orange, yellow and brown all in various shades, then there is the purple in the beautiful lips of the girl that Isherwood has named on the rear as Nippy. The brushwork is brilliant, giving this painting such atmosphere. I wonder who she was, such a beautiful girl, caught in such a brilliant way.

This is a wonderful opportunity to own a genuine J Lawrence Isherwood painting. Whether you are new to Isherwood, or an experienced collector, this really is a very good example of his work.
