Stan Smith – the last works

During a long stay in hospital in the months before he died, Stan Smith drew a remarkable series of more than 100 self portraits. These fearsomely honest drawings, compiled in half a dozen spiral bound A4 sketchpads, have been kept by his widow Kate since Stan’s death in 2001.

Many thanks to photographer Hugh Gilbert for his painstaking efforts in recording Stan’s last work.
