Born in Barcelona, Escofet moved to the UK in 1979. She later undertook a BA (Hons) degree in 3D design at Brighton School of Art. Miriam Escofet’s work has been seen in solo exhibitions in Europe and in a joint exhibition with her father, the painter José Escofet. Her work is regularly selected for the annual exhibitions of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and was previously selected for the BP Portrait Award in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

The portrait is of the artist’s mother, herself an artist. Escofet says: ‘My mother has a wonderful inner stillness and calm that I really wanted to convey in this work. She is at the centre of the pictorial space and the perspective of the tea crockery leads to a vanishing point contained within her.‘
