Portrait by Laurence Norris

This beautiful portrait of Sarah Jane Craig painted by Laurence Norris in 1944/5 was brought to our attention recently. It is hoped to be put it on public display somewhere. Laurence Norris was a student at the BSoA between 1929 – 1932. He won a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Art and graduated with the prestigious Prix de Rome, of which there is more about in this website’s History Section. After WWII he returned to the BSoA and taught there until he retired.
