Anne Magill donates painting to the Terence Higgins Trust Gala Auction


Anne Magill is to donate a painting in a fund raising effort on behalf of the Terrence Higgins Trust for the forthcoming Lighthouse Gala Auction in aid of the Terrence Higgins Trust, which is to be held at Christie’s on 22nd March 2010.


Entitled Still, the painting is one of a series of studies of performers preparing to go on stage. These works will feature in Magill’s forthcoming exhibition, to open at a major new gallery space in London later this year, details of which will be announced via this website nearer the time.


Vettriano’s publishing company, Heartbreak Publishing, is to publish a range of limited edition prints, posters and cards featuring Anne Magill’s haunting images.


Anne Magill is one of the art world’s best-kept secrets, with work held in corporate and Private Collections worldwide, including those of an astonishing list of Hollywood stars.


Magill’s figures reside in the twentieth century but have a timeless quality where the edges that define generations or period are blurred. The evocative nature of her paintings is perhaps best described by the author, Josephine Hart:


“The great power of Anne’s work is her Hopper-like genius to compel us to weave a story, conjured from our own repertoire about these scenes. Though we do not know the men or women we feel we recognize them, as they stand gazing at an event we cannot see or walking, face hidden under a hat, towards a destination of which we are unaware”.
