About this work

This portrait depicts Stephanie Tennant (1934-84). Tennant was a documentary film producer at Random Productions Ltd, 1960-84. Commissioned for use in Rowntree & Co. Ltd Aero chocolate advertising, the painting, by Anthony Devas ARA RP (1911-58) , was published in Illustrated magazine during February 1956 as part of the national Aero Girls 'DIFFERENT' advertising campaign devised by JWT. The work is framed and is likely to have been on display at the Rowntree factory in York until the late 1980s when the company was bought by Nestlé.
