Portfolio for Etienne Millner - Commissionaportrait

Goldsmith's College when Etienne was a student in the 1970s was a hot bed of artistic talent both conceptual and figurative. Among the teaching staff was Ivor Roberts Jones, best known for his Winston Churchill sculpture in Parliament Square. It was his inspiring teaching which set Etienne on a quest to explore all the sculptural possibilities of the human figure. Etienne knew he would never cease to be fascinated by the possibilities of portrait sculpture. Commissions have included monumental portraiture, figure groups, busts of politicians, writers, musicians, and his well known portraits of children. Among them are Sir Lennox Berkeley, Lord and Lady Harris of Peckham, Toyah Willcox, Adrian Daintrey, Viscount Whitelaw, Field Marshal Sir Claude Auchinleck, Lord Thurlow, Rumer Godden, Sir Derek Alun Jones, Oliver Mould and Lord Settrington. Works are in the following collections: National Portrait Gallery; Harris Manchester College, Oxford; Wellington College; Goodwood House; Weston Foundation; Longford Castle; Daily Mail; and numerous private collections at home and abroad.Exhibitions include Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions, Royal Society of Portrait Painters Peoples Portraits 2000, New Faces at the NPG and one man show at Cadogan Contemporary.
