Caroline de Peyrecave
Born in London, Caroline trained at the atelier Charles Cecil Studios in Florence. She has worked from her Fulham studio for the past 10 years, recently expanding to a converted barn in the Surrey hills ideally suited to larger scale works. Building on classical foundations that underpin her ability to capture exceptional likeness, Caroline’s portraiture is elevated by the strength of relationship with her sitters and sensitivity of line, bringing a contemporary eye to the techniques of the old masters and in doing so capturing a moment in time that feels forever within reach. Caroline has held solo shows in London and Brussels, with a permanent collection of her work hanging at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Stanford Hall. She has painted several notable sitters including commissions for Halcyon Days, E4, and the British Army, and has received consistently good press coverage including BBC News and Radio 4 Front Row.
