An unexpected email from the grandson of the painter Mckenzie Moss has delivered us a real surprise.
The portrait of Dave Pearson above was made by Mckenzie in 1962 when Dave lodged with Mckenzie and David Bates in Preston. Mckenzie and David were both ex-students of the Royal College of Arts and lecturers at Preston. Dave had recently joined the staff at Preston and at this date presumably travelled up to Preston from London on a weekly basis.
My thanks to Ben Holland for alerting us to this, and to Mckenzie for her permission to show the painting here.
