Chantal Joffe - Childhood Now



Chantal Joffe - Childhood Now




ay Compton Verney, Warwickshire.

Joffe often works from photographs, but is adamant that she can only paint her daughter, Esme, as she currently is. Joffe's paintings of Esme chart the artist's changing role as a woman and a mother.
