Chantal Joffe is a painter based in London. She is known for her arresting portraits of women. Working both from life with sitters in her studio, and from photographs, she uses broad, fluid brushstrokes to animate her protagonists. Her iconic depictions, which are often intimate and imbued with humour, testify to the concerns and mores of women from diverse walks of life.

Chantal brings a combination of insight and integrity, as well as psychological and emotional force, to the genre of figurative art. Hers is a deceptively casual brushstroke. Whether in images a few inches square or ten feet high, fluidity combined with a pragmatic approach to representation seduces and disarms. We are thrilled to be celebrating International Women's Day with this tender portrait of Chantal's daughter, Esme.
