Hero Johnson, who first portrayed Barbara Hosking CBE for the Lots Road Group’s Portrayed! exhibition, has paid tribute to her sitter and mentor.
“She inspired and mentored so many women over her long and illustrious life and I will always be gratetful to have been among them,” she said.
The International Women’s Forum UK commemorated its 25th Anniversary in 2015 with a portrait exhibition of 16 of its most inspiring women – its four founders and its first 12 chairs.
IWF UK is part of the International Women’s Forum, an organisation which advances leadership across careers, cultures and continents by connecting the world’s most pre-eminent women of significant and diverse achievement.
The portraits – contained in this online catalogue – were created by artists in the Lots Road Group. Barbara was married up with Hero, appropriately, by the drawing of lots, and they discovered they both had a connection in Cornwall.
