Nicholas Tolley Footballer Portraits
A MAJOR new exhibition, Nicholas Tolley Footballer Portraits, featuring life-size portraits of some of the sport’s most iconic international personalities, is on display at La Galleria Pall Mall until Saturday, September 5, 2009.
Nicholas Tolley graduated from Art School in 1980 and in 1984 hit the world of sports portraits in a seminal exhibition in Sloane Square. Themed around horse-racing, his paintings of jockeys, trainers and racing scenes were immediately heralded among the best of the genre.
Several more exhibitions followed at Sloane Square, then Chelsea, and outside London at Hungerford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Newmarket and Deauville.
Well-known patrons include Sheikh Mohammed, Lady Tavistock, Charles Wacker III, Lord Grimthorpe, Sir Micheal Stoute, the late Robert Sangster, Sir Peter O’Sullevan, Ronnie Corbett, Lester Piggott, Pat Eddery, Graham Cowdrey, James Alexander Gordon and many others.
