In an intimate interview, Vivienne discusses the work of the artists Frank Auerbach and JM Whistler who drew inspiration from scenes of London and the River Thames. These artists have a personal significance to her and she speaks about how the museums and galleries of London have been a constant source of inspiration throughout her life.
The paintings are Frank Auerbach’s ‘Oxford Street Building Site’ (1959/60) and JM Whistler’s ‘Nocturne: Blue and Silver – Cremorne Lights’ (1872) which are part of the BP British Art Displays at Tate Britain.
