Jonathan Yeo has been collaborating with the actor and model Cara Delevingne on series of portraits which will be unveiled as part of the forthcoming exhibition at Denmark's Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle, Copenhagen.
The show, which is the largest retrospective of Yeo's work to date and runs from 20 March till 30 June 2016, will have a room solely dedicated to these new paintings created over the last eighteen months in the artist’s London studio.
We are pleased to announce that on the 20th March 2016 The Museum of National History, at Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark, will open the largest ever exhibition of Jonathan Yeo’s work to date. The show will include several new paintings, alongside many of the best known works from his 25 year career, and is the first retrospective by a British artist at the museum.
Next month a new portrait of Kevin Spacey will be unveiled at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, one of the world's most prestigious institutions. The work continues a collaboration between Spacey and Yeo which began with the depiction of him playing Richard III at the Old Vic.
“It is hard to imagine a greater honor than painting one of the finest actors of our age for one of the most important institutions in the world,” said Yeo. “It is also a great pleasure to continue this creative collaboration with Kevin, which we began at London’s National Portrait Gallery; this time bringing a new work to his home soil in the U.S.”
