Sophie Levi studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Prince’s Drawing School after undertaking a BA (Hons) in philosophy and art history at Leeds University. Her work has been seen in solo and group exhibitions in London including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Hunting Art Prize and the BP Portrait Award 1996 and 1997.

The portrait is of Levi’s acquaintance, Clifford, a retired architect and artist. It was painted entirely in the second of two three-hour sittings at the artist’s studio and is part of a series of three-hour portraits on which she is currently working.
