John Wonnacott (English, born 1940)
Wonnacott was born in London and trained at the Slade School from 1958 to 63 where he was taught by Frank Auerbach and Michael Andrews. He emerged as an ambitious representative of the figurative tradition, painting landscapes as well as portraits. His work has been described as 'heroic' in reference to the large scale on which he works and the complexity of his compositions. Recent commissions include the portraits of Fleet Admiral Lord Lewin (1999, National Maritime Museum) and the Royal Family (2000, National Portrait Gallery, London).
