Maria Carbonell undertook a BA degree and doctoral studies in fine arts at San Carlos Faculty of Fine Arts, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain. Her work has been seen in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Spain and was included in the BP Portrait Award 2011.

The portrait is of the artist’s father. She says of the choice of composition: ‘I chose this because I wanted to capture my father in an intimate, personal and even vulnerable way. During one’s life, bed is the backdrop to our dreams, feelings and important experiences such as birth, illness and death.’
