Nice to see you, to see you nice: Bruce Forsyth pic to go on show

Monday April 26, 2010

A portrait of Bruce Forsyth is to be displayed at an art gallery next month.

The yet-to-be-seen painting features the veteran presenter donning his "characteristic grin" at his home in Wentworth.

"We worked in his house, on the Wentworth Estate, fitting in time between his numerous commitments," says artist Michael Noakes.

"His is a curious life for a man in his 80s, when most successful people are relaxing after their working life is over.

"I thought about painting him looking more reflective, and he certainly does not spend all his time with a great smile on his face, but in the end I decided that I needed to settle on that characteristic grin."

The Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition runs from May 6 to May 21 at the Mall Galleries in central London.
