Antony Williams ‘Drawings’

PREVIEW: Friday 6 September, from 6pm, free to attend  BOOK PLACE


Antony Williams trained at Farnham College of Art and Portsmouth University. He is Vice President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and is a member of the New English Art Club and the Pastel Society. His work is based on intense observation, particularly of human flesh, creating as a result, a heightened sense of realism. Best known for his works using the painting method of egg tempera, the exhibition offers a rare chance to see his drawings, including preparatory work for some of his large-scale paintings.

Portrait commissions by Williams include the late Queen, RT Hon Margaret Beckett MP, Sir Donald Sinden, Ömer Koç, Amartya Kumar Sen, Sir Alan Budd, Alex Bouzari, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Sir Steve Cowley and Tristan Rees Roberts.

His work has been recognised with numerous awards, including first prize in the Herbert Smith Freehills Portrait Award 2024 at the National Portrait Gallery in July 2024. Williams’s work is held in notable public collections including the National Portrait Gallery; Royal Collection; House of Commons; MCC Lords; Garrick Club; Corpus Christi, Oxford; Trinity Hall, Cambridge; Queens College, Oxford and a number of significant private collections.
