Lynette Yiadom-Boakye 'Sack' on sale at Bonhams Post-War & Contemporary Art Sale

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye Sack, 2005 Oil on linen

A powerful early work, Sack (2005), by contemporary British painter Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, is one of the highlights of Bonhams Post-War & Contemporary Art Sale at New Bond Street on Wednesday 6 March. The artist is known for her paintings of people of color against muted ambiguous backgrounds, and Sack, painted in loosely gestural strokes, is a superb example. 

Sack was first exhibited in the Artists of the Day series at The Flowers Gallery, Mayfair in 2005.
