Sir Tim was the second recipient of the Charleston-EFG Keynes Prize in 2016.
As part of the prize, the winner could commission a piece of art. Below is the painting commissioned by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.
The title is ‘Conway and Mary.’
Tim Berners-Lee gave the artist Louisa Risch a small black and white photograph of his parents who are both now in their 90’s and wanted to enlarge it and inject some colour into it.
It was painted in oils, and Risch wanted the picture to have a sepia quality to show the time that it was from.
Risch is a portrait painter, based in London and usually works with subjects from life in her studio in Fulham, but was very excited to take on this commission for Tim and Rosemary Leach (Sir Tim’s wife).
