Nicky Philipps, Portrait Painter, Represented by Fine Art Commissions, St. James's, London

Selected Quotes

"There is a dignity to the full-length portrait that Philipps has produced, and it shows her enjoyment in her portrayal of the robes, "and her desire to make things sparkle"."

Karen Wright, Art Critic, The Independent

"Philipps paints close likenesses of William and Harry, a style common to contemporary portraitists owing something to celebrated figures of the past like John Singer Sargent."

Ben Luke, Art Critic, The Evening Standard

"Nicky Philipps is an accomplished painter. She works with fluent skill, her effects apparently unforced. ..This is an intimate composition that puts the Princes at our level, inviting the spectator to become almost a third person in the small conversational group."

Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Daily Telegraph

"This is actually a contemporary history painting that alludes in a dignified way to the most important fact about Britain now, that people are dying in uniform. Just as Manet made the style of Velazquez an image of the new, so Nicky Philipps finds poses for our strange time in old paintings. There is a keenness and a style to this portrait without the swagger."

Jonathan Jones, Art Critic, The Guardian

"Paint", says Nicky Philipps, "'is a different way of looking at somebody, the trouble with the camera is that it produces something that everyone can see."

Nicky's portraits over 15 years show much experiment en route to the idiomatic painterly language she has now.
