Learn more about this portrait of David Bowie by Stephen Finer.

Stephen Finer's working practice involves long hours in the studio in front of professional models or close friends, in which paint slowly accumulates on the canvas and is worked and re-worked to create an image which finally corresponds to the artist's experience of the other person.

Portrait of the Day talks are given by members of the Gallery's Visitor Services Team and last for up to 30 minutes. Talks are subject to change.
