Portrait Head by British School

We have tried in vain to unravel the signature in the bottom right hand corner. Nevertheless, this work by (at the moment) an unknown artist, demonstrates a vitality and vigour which we found very compelling. Quite apart from any other attribute of the picture, it successfully reminds us of the fact that portraiture has long been, and remains, a very strong thread in the fabric of Modern British Art.
