Barbara Windsor 1992 by Stephen B Whatley
Painted 20 years ago this month, a portrait of legendary British star of stage, film & television, Barbara Windsor (1937-).
The actress - known for both her dramatic and comedy roles; as well as being a great singer - sat for expressionist artist Stephen B Whatley at her London home.
The artist captured the deeper, contemplative side of Ms Windsor and on viewing the completed portrait the actress was initially 'speechless' before exclaiming "Its fab!!"; going on to commission a surprise portrait (from photographs) of her husband.
