Press Quotes
Stephen Brenkley, 2001 - The Independent;  
"Nick Botting was the man who pinned down Ian Botham for long enough to paint a portrait. This is no mean feat in itself, and to turn out the sort of study of the great all-rounder that Botting has managed is worthy of still greater credit. Or, rather, studies, since the sitting with Botham, cigar poised in right hand, in Lahore last November has yielded three separate paintings. They are the first proper portraits of Botham, but anybody hoping to purchase one for their private collection will be disappointed. The MCC have acquired one, the cricketer turned equally feisty commentator has snaffled one for himself and Botting is keeping one.  
There are more than 30 other pictures in the exhibition, all painted on Botting's trip to Pakistan last winter as the MCC's official artist. They are sturdy pictures of cricket and cricketers, capturing effort and muscle tone, but they depict Pakistan accurately in its vibrant singularity."
