Known as both an Impressionist and Expressionist, artist James Lawrence Isherwood painted portraits and London and Wigan street scenes. One of the most noted portraits painter James Lawrence Isherwood created was that of Mary Whitehouse, which was commissioned by the BBC's Director General, Hugh Greene. Isherwood's portraits for sale didn't come into their full value until shortly after his death, partly because Isherwood was not sure how to price them. As an artist, James Isherwood's style is energetic; vibrant colors and forceful brushstrokes convey the energy of a scene. Isherwood was an eccentric and original artist, and his works were purchased by savvy collectors, including HRH Prince Charles. Art lovers who are looking to add to their collections can find rare portrait paintings online and at auction.
