WARTS AND ALL?


Here we are with our self portraits done at La Petite Galerie. 

At this point it is probably worth quoting what Oliver Cromwell is reputed to have said to the official portraitist:


"Mr Lely, I desire you would use all your skill to paint my picture truly like me, and not flatter me at all; but remark all these roughnesses, pimples, warts, and everything as you see me; otherwise I will never pay a farthing for it."
