Nic Vickery's "Gracie Fields" Portrait


International Conflict


"'Gracie Fields' was inspired by that fantastic band of ladies who worked through both World Wars, known as the Women's Land Army. I have a cherished photo of my Gran, 'Kitty', taken in 1917 in her 1st World War Land Army uniform. Although my Gracie may be in 1940s garb, she stands for a generation that faced life and an ever changing reality with determination and fortitude. "

- Oxford born artist, Nic Vickery
