Portrait of the Rt Hon. the Baroness D’Souza CMG Lord Speaker: Part Two



In 2015 Paul Benney was commissioned by the House of Lords Works of Art Committee to paint a portrait of Baroness D’Souza during her term of office as Lord Speaker. This film shows footage of the portrait being painted, including interviews with the artist and the sitter. The completed artwork will join the Parliamentary Art Collection and be displayed in the House of Lords. This film was commissioned by the Curator’s Office to document this portrait commission and provide insight into the portrait painting process.
