Maxwell Bates

Artist In Our Collection: Myfanwy Pavelic (1916-2007)

By Audrey Wang, AGGV Volunteer

Myfanwy Pavelic’s portraits go far beyond the mere representation of her sitters. Mostly self-taught in her art, Pavelic produces portraits which balance the outer with the inner, countering likeness with her subjects’ emotions, fears, strengths and vulnerabilities.
