Leading portrait artist Alexander Newley talks about growing up as the son of Hollywood stars Joan Collins and Anthony Newley and reflects on his life and art.

Newley talks in Unaccompanied Minor of a privileged and glamorous Hollywood lifestyle but also of a nomadic childhood growing up in a family that was beset by infidelity, insecurity and emotional trauma. He tells of the break-up of his parents’ marriage and of his attempts to make sense of it. Newley also reflects on art and identity and shows some of the portraits of famous people that have made his name.

Newley is based in London but is well known on both sides of the Atlantic. His portrait of US polemicist Gore Vidal and his triple-portrait of Superman star Christopher Reeve imprisoned in his life-supporting wheelchair are in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.
