Fine limited-edition art print of my painting 'Louise in Pink'. Features vibrant reds and with green accents, captured in archival ink. The colours are guaranteed to stay true for a lifetime. Limited-edition of just 125.

'Louise in Pink' is my new portrait of silent film star Louise Brooks. She's one of a series of portraits called 'How to be Beautiful'. These paintings explore our ideals of female beauty... and how they shape how we see ourselves.  Louise was the original 'It Girl'. She married millionaires, slept with Greta Garbo and eventually became a noted film writer. But at thirty-six, divorced and out of work in 1940s New York, found that “the only well-paying career open to me... ...was that of a call girl”.

You'll find 'Louise in Pink' in our two edition sizes, 30 x 40 cm and 50 x 70cm (photographed). Both are standard sizes for frames including those in Ikea's 'Ribba' collection.
