A unique portrait of the actress and model Cara Delevingne has been consigned to September’s charity auction.
This exceptional work by one of the world’s leading figurative artists, Jonathan Yeo, will be sold to raise funds for the new Mary Hare primary school for deaf children across the UK.
Created in 2016, the Cara Study is an archival pigment print with hand finished varnished on Hahnemule Photo Rag with torn edges.
The print measures 42cm x 42cm. Similar works by Jonathan Yeo retail at approximately £3,000.
Entirely self-taught, Yeo rose to prominence as a figurative painter following several major official commissions, including Sir David Attenborough, peace activist Malala Yousafzai and former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Yeo’s work has been exhibited widely in museums and galleries around the world and has been the subject of several major mid-career retrospectives in the UK and internationally.
Dreweatts are proud to be hosting The Mary Hare Charity Auction on Monday 2nd September. In collaboration with Pippa Middleton, renowned sculptor Sophie Ryder and over 25 esteemed artists, the auction will raise funds for a new primary school, specially designed for deaf children.
