Wine­house por­trait to go on sale

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
