Brushstroke for the Art Fund

Brushstroke for the Art Fund

The Art Fund is an independent art charity in the United Kingdom that exists to save art for everyone to enjoy. They have helped place Turner’s Bowes Tower in the Bowes Museum, County Durham; Ellsworth Kelly’s drawings in the Hunterian Gallery, Glasgow; a still life by Jan Davidsz de Heem in the Glasgow Art Gallery; Sylvia Plath’s portrait of Ted Hughes in the National Portrait Gallery etc etc.

This year they start a new fundrainsing initiative, Brushstrokes and invited Howard Hodgkin to paint the first one.

It is available in different formats, framed or unframed. Hodgkin designed the frame, incidentally.

A personal message for the recipient can be included to accompany any brushstroke you send.
