Stay in Bath > News > Children > Ken Loach portrait shown at Victoria Arts

A portrait of Bath filmmaker, Ken Loach, which was created by Richard Twose, an artist based near Bath will go on show at the Bath and North East Somerset Council-run Victoria Art Gallery in October.

On loan from the artist, the picture was a follow up to a portrait commissioned by Oxford University. During the sittings, they talked politics and football, Loach being a keen supporter of Bath City FC. In the picture, the bird is a reference to Loach’s film, Kes. The dog is a motif that has been used in many of Loach’s films.

Councillor Paul Myers, said: “We are very grateful to Richard Twose for lending this impressive portrait to the Victoria Art Gallery. It is good to see a local artist exhibiting a portrait of another local.”

The portrait of Ken Loach will go on display from 2nd October in the Victoria Art Gallery’s upper gallery which is free to visit.
