About this artwork

Gwen John's self-portrait was created early on in her journey as an artist. Between 1895 and 1898, she refined her skills at the Slade School of Art in London, even bagging a prise for figure composition. The painting features her hand resting on her hip, and her watchful eye, hinting a certain level of self-assuredness. This replica is a color-correct match to the original and was given the green light by the National Portrait Gallery. Plus, every buy of this piece aids the museum's efforts.

About the artist

Gwen John (1876–1939), a British painter, was starkly different from her brother, Augustus John, both in her artistic style and persona. A reserved person, Gwen preferred introspective themes. She studied at the Slade School from 1895 to 1898 and later, in Paris, took lessons from Whistler, adopting his subtle, greyish tonality. After a short return to London in 1899, she permanently moved to France in 1904, modelling for artists including her eventual lover, Rodin. In 1913, Gwen converted to Catholicism, stating her faith and art were her life. Her work, often featuring solitary figures in interiors, was marked by sensitivity and discreet dignity. Despite her reclusive lifestyle, Gwen's talent outshone her brother's, and her recognition grew posthumously, especially from the 1960s onwards.
