Professor Eileen Hogan is an established portrait artist who studied at the Royal College of Art. Her most recent exhibitions were at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and the V&A. Her work has been seen in group exhibitions including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (from 1974 to 2009) and the BP Portrait Award 2007 and 2009.

The portrait is of Sir Paul Ruddock, Chief Executive of Lansdowne Partners Limited and Chair of the Trustees of the V&A. Hogan was inspired by Sir Thomas Lawrence’s drawing of the financier and philanthropist Sir Francis Baring (1740–1810), and searched for a contemporary equivalent in the financial sector.
