Congratulations to Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, a young and talented artist whose beautiful painting, “Knave,” is on the cover of this month’s Frieze Magazine.
Lynette is a British artist of Ghanaian ancestry who is important to the Nasher Museum. One of her lush portraits is part of our permanent collection and was featured in last year’s exhibition, “Building the Contemporary Collection: Five Years of Acquisitions.”

For more information about Lynette’s work, visit Jack Shainman gallery in New York.
