Hannah Uzor, who holds the Milein Cosman Scholarship for Drawing at the Slade School of Fine Art, is one of six artists commissioned by English Heritage to create portraits of significant figures from the African diaspora whose stories contributed to the history of England. Hannah’s portrait of Sarah Forbes-Bonetta was initially exhibited at Osborne House, the private family home of Queen Victoria, where Sarah often visited as a protegée of the queen.

English Heritage is now partnering with the Africa Centre to bring all six portraits together for the first time, in a new exhibition which will run from 10 September until 28 October. See the Africa Centre and English Heritage websites for more details.
