Glenda Jackson Portrait 

Sue was commissioned by the Old Vic theatre to paint a portrait of Glenda Jackson for the publicity for her performance as King Lear – her first return to theatre after 25 years.

The posters for the show can be seen on the London underground, as well as outside the Old Vic theatre.

Sue was approached having previously painted Glenda for her solo exhibition ‘What are you looking at?’, at the Strand Gallery, London, where the portrait was hung against a painted wallpaper of naked women inviting the viewer to explore and question the use of the female body.
