About this work

Although the title of this portrait is Nancy, the painting actually depicts the illustrator Diane Gabbott née Baldwin (1934-2002). When she sat for this work she was still an art student and later married the artist Raymond Gabbott (1925-2005). The portrait was published in Rowntree & Co. Ltd Aero chocolate print advertising in August 1954 as part of the national Aero Girls 'DIFFERENT' campaign devised by JWT.
