Venus II by Annie Kevans

Annie Kevans is a young British artist who specialises in imagined portraits of famous people, her Boys series for her degree show, which featured portraits of dictators as young children, was bought in it's entirety by Charles Saatchi in 2004.
This painting is an original oil on paper from her All the Presidents Girls series which depicts mistresses of American Presidents. Venus was the lover of George Washington.
I bought this from FAS Contemporary Art in London a couple of years ago. Annie is no longer represented by this gallery, she now sells her work through the Perry Rubenstein gallery in New York.
