Nicole Farhi CBE, internationally known fashion designer, has been sculpting for 30 years. She was tutored and mentored by the late great sculptor Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005). Her bronze bust has beautifully captured Gainsborough’s mercurial personality, the gaze reminiscent of his late self-portrait. Nicole has kindly allowed 10 copies of this fine sculpture to be made in order to help Gainsborough’s House raise funds.
