The Milliner

​Two leading ‘hedonists’, portrait artist Lorna May Wadsworth and her friend and muse Victoria Grant announce an exhibition showcasing pieces inspired by the other maker. Wadsworth will unveil a “love letter”, a large-scale portrait of her friend Victoria, while Grant will create a collection inspired by Lorna and a selection of Philip Mould’s prized miniature paintings of ladies

from the 18th century through to the 1920s, making this a truly collaborative event between all three principals. Grant and Wadsworth who share similar aesthetics in their work, namely a veneration and respect for British tradition, laced with a rakishness and good-natured flamboyance, have colluded in making pieces that not only represent themselves but each other.
