It was a chance encounter at the Pavilion Gallery, which launched Sally Trueman’s artistic, she met the Royal portrait painter John Hughes-Hallett, and they remained good friends until his death in 1991. Not surprisingly her work focuses on portraiture.
Greatly influenced by her mentor, her portraits are bold, yet sensitive, capturing the inner life of her subject. Many of her portraits, particularly those of businessmen, hang in corporate and private collections worldwide. (Sally Trueman holds the copyright for all John Hughes-Hallett’s paintings, except those residing in Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Prince of Wales Art Collections.)
Sally’s work makes up part of the Museum Carcassonne, Brighton Museum & the National Portrait Gallery collections. She has had her paintings published in a number of magazines and books including, Internationl Artists and Illustrators, Pratique des Arts, and The Neurobiology of Painting by Dr. Frank Clifford Rose, FRCP, Consultant Neurologist.
Pseudonym used by the artist have included the name Heinrich Stoltz from 1975 until the late 1990’s.
Sally Trueman is available for commissions, exhibitions, events and would be interested in collaborating on bigger projects with other artists.
On a lighter note…
