A portriat of Clifford Thurlow by Richard Bagguley

Clifford Thurlow, Oil on canvas 2007/10

Richard Bagguley's approach to portraits is distinct in that he wants them to live and tell a story, the painting above is a portrait of the author Clifford Thurlow a successful ghost writer.
It started as a simple head and shoulders portrait but went on to include the books he had written which started to have a life of their own, his long term partner Iris Gioia also makes an appearance. This is not only portrait it's living history.
