Professor Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)

The news of the death of Professor Stephen Hawking has been met with great sadness at Bohun Gallery. We were privileged to have met the Professor during the comissioning of his portraits for Cambridge University and the Royal Society.

Entrepreneur Philanthropist, Dame Stephanie Shirley, commissioned the portrait of Professor Stephen Hawking, for the Royal Society, London in 2009, by the artist Tai-Shan Schierenberg .

Tai-Shan Schierenberg's name was suggested to Dame Stephanie by her art consultant, Patricia Jordan Evans of Bohun Gallery, who extolled the strength of Tai's work and worked closely with Dame Stephanie and the artist throughout the commission. Tai-Shan Schierenberg studied at the Slade and is a winner of the BP Portrait award and the National Portrait Gallery's John Player Portrait Award and a judge on the Sky Artist of the Year.
