A6 (10 x 15 cm) single postcard featuring Tilda Swinton by John Byrne from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
Tilda Swinton is an acclaimed actress, famous for her roles in the films of the avant garde director, Derek Jarman, and the title role in an adaptation of Virginia Woolf's 'Orlando' (1993). Her work in theatre and in film has often explored and challenged supposed differences between genders and in 2008 she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film 'Michael Clayton'.
This vibrant chalk drawing captures Tilda Swinton's fragile beauty as well as her serious and strong intelligence.
John Byrne (born 6 January 1940) is a Scottish playwright and artist. Best known for writing The Slab Boys Trilogy of plays about working-class life in Scotland, he has been described as the first postmodern poet from Paisley.
