Ambrose McEvoy (1877-1927) had the rare ability to create a portrait that not only reflected the likeness of the subject but captured and reflected their character. His work drew the attention of leading society figures like Winston Churchill and Lady Diana Cooper, and prominent socialites and debutantes were soon vying for sittings in his Grosvenor Road studio.

Despite his success, McEvoy's name was quickly forgotten after he died unexpectedly at the peak of his career in 1927, because many of his most accomplished works remain tucked away in private collections. This monograph aims to return this long-neglected artist to the canon of twentieth-century British art.
