Poetry Portraits Launch Thursday 1 May, Bloomsbury Hotel

Lavender Hill Studios artists have captured some of the UK’s best poets on canvas, including: Sir Andrew Motion, the late Seamus Heaney, Jo Shapcott and Wendy Cope.

Poetry Portraits is a unique celebration of poetry and art and the intersection between the two.  It is a collaborative project between Lavender Hill Studios and Poet in the City.  The collection of portraits will hang outside the Seamus Heaney Library in the Bloomsbury Hotel through 2014, before being sold for charity next year.  You can view film footage of the project here.
