Winehouse portrait to go on sale
A portrait of Amy Winehouse painted after a chance meeting in a pub is to go on sale for £24,000.
Dan Llywelyn Hall completed his image of the singer in 2012 – a year before he became the 133rd artist to formally paint the Queen.
His one-off piece, entitled Amy’s Glance, was painted after he met the Rehab singer in Camden pub The Hawley Arms in late 2009.
The Cardiff-born artist said he approached Winehouse and asked to paint her portrait, to which she replied: “As long as you get the hair right”.
She agreed to sit for an hour for the artist when she returned from a holiday in St Lucia.
Mr Llywelyn Hall began painting Amy’s Glance shortly after their meeting, completing it following the singer’s death from alcohol poisoning in July 2011.
It will go on display at the London Art Fair, which opens on Tuesday, along with portraits of David Bowie and Michael Jackson.
