Appalling Portrait Does Kate No Justice

with 3 comments


What a dreadful result!  It puts at least 20 years on her, captures nothing of her personality and beauty and deserves only incarceration in the Tower.

Perhaps, mercifully, the artist, Paul Emsley, may retain his head but have his hands removed so that he can never commit such an atrocious act again!  The National Portrait Gallery should take it down immediately.

  2. It does look as if she had been slapped – hard – swelling the side of her face which is more covered by her hair.

    Surely not?

    • Maybe she wouldn’t sit still. you know how touchy these artists can be.

      It may have been better if he’d painted it from a photo, I’m sure the Super-Soaraway-Scum could have let him have a few that they didn’t use.
