Howard Tangye
Giorgio (Two figures, pink & blue), Mixed media on Pergameneta parchment

2020

About the Item

Howard Tangye (b.1948, Australia) has been an influential force in fashion for decades. Lecturing at London’s Central Saint Martins for 35 years, including 16 years as head of BA Womenswear. There, he tutored many contemporary greats, including John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Wes Gordon, Zac Posen and Hussein Chalayan. Examples of Tangye’s portraits are held in many important collections, both public and private, including the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), Harvard University and London’s National Portrait Gallery. Throughout his teaching career Tangye quietly developed a particularly idiosyncratic art practice. By employing a decisive line with bold applications of richly layered materials, Tangye explores the nuances of the human form in an effort to expose his subjects’ true essence and energy. — Howard Tangye Giorgio (Two figures, pink & blue), 2020 Mixed media on Pergamenata parchment 70 x 100 cm (27.55 x 39.37 in) (signed) (unframed) *Framed image is representative only.
