Me in 1987..oil by xxaihxx Me in 1987..oil by xxaihxx
This is a painting of me by my mentor Ronald Benham done in 1987 and shown at the Royal Academy of that year......found it whilst clearing out my house.It's a small painting which is why it got lost amongst all my canvases! Was pleased to find it..brought back many memories of my times as his model!


Ronald Benham: Ronald Benham, RBA, NEAC (1915-1993) was a well known painter in oils of portraits, figure subjects and landscapes; he also produced lithographs. He was born in London and studied at Hornsey School of Art. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1959, and with the New English Art Club (elected a member 1972), the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and the Royal Society of British Artists (elected a member 1977). He taught at Epsom School of Art and lived for many years at Cheam in Surrey.

I'm an imposter ! sorry but I'm not an artist and this site should not be for me, however, I rather stumbled across your painting. I wonder if this is something that you would consider selling ? I would be interested in buying this from you and would be glad to know a little more of the background if you are. Hope to hear from you and, regardless, my best wishes.
