John Izod Portrait for Rye Bonfire Auction of Promises

“The Devil You Know?”
Original print. Drypoint
Edition of 100
Image size – 25×20 cm

Among my favourite portraits is one I did of John Izod a few years ago for the Rye Bonfire Society’s Auction of Promises, and which now hangs in the Ypres pub.

Preparing for the portrait, I made an ink sketch of John, which I later turned into this drypoint called “The Devil You Know?”

To mark the very sad news of John’s death, Tim and I (Roche Gallery) are offering a framed print of “The Devil You Know?” for this year’s auction in aid of Rye Bonfire Society, which was a cause very dear to John’s heart.
