Pauline Boty (1938-1966), Artist and actress

Sitter in 29 portraits
Boty studied at Wimbledon College of Art and the Royal College of Art, and participated in one of the first exhibitions of British Pop Art in London in 1961. She then appeared in Ken Russell's documentary Pop Goes the Easel in 1962. By the time of her first solo show in 1963, she was re-using images of celebrities, and her work was becoming increasingly political. Her painting The Only Blonde in the World (1963) depicting Marilyn Monroe, is in the Tate. As an actress Boty appeared on stage, film (a small part in Michael Caine's Alfie) and television, and was auditioned for Julie Christie's part in Darling.
