Malala's Portrait

Jonathan Yeo's portrait of Malala Yousafzai, entitled Girl Reading (2013), comes up for sale in Christie's New York auction of Post -War and Contemporary Art. It first appeared last year in the exhibition Jonathan Yeo Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery in London (CLICK). It was announced then that Jonathan would be donating the portrait to benefit the Malala Fund, a charity set up by Malala to support the fight for girls’ right to education. The portrait is estimated at $60,000 - $80,000. Malala says "I hope that whoever buys the painting knows that their generosity will directly help children in some of the most challenging environments in the world.” CLICK to view a larger graphic of this excellent work.
