Further information

As a young woman, Nora Heysen produced a number of self portraits in her father's studio, of which the Gallery has two drawings and an oil painting dated 1932. Heysen's self portraits are marked with qualities of introspection and restraint, which nevertheless project an assured and assertive confidence of personality.
