John Bellany and Stan Smith were friends, fellow artists and drinking companions. This portait was made circa 1980 at a time when they were seeing quite a lot of each other; Stan were then president of The London Group and John had been elected vice-president.

Take a look too at the series of etching portrait that London Group members made while preparing for their annual exhibition in 1980.
