It is with great sadness that we read in this week’s Observer that the remarkable Katharine Whitehorn has been diagnosed with advanced Alzheimers Disease.
Lots Road Group member Sarah Richardson writes:
“This is particularly sad for me as I had the great privilege of being able to paint Katharine’s portrait three years ago for the Lots Road Group’s exhibition ‘Portrayed’. Our time together in the studio will be with me always for it was an extraordinary opportunity to share the company of this brilliant, witty and beautiful woman who broke journalistic barriers for the way women were perceived in all walks of life. ”
Katharine Whitehorn’s portrait is now in the private collection of Newnham Cambridge, her old college.
