    Lynette Yiadom-Boakye review – ‘she’s turned Tate Britain on its head’ https://t.co/vRbA8FmV1d

    Suffice it to say her work hearkens back to European Old Masters.

    Bio background from wikipedia Her parents were immigrants from Ghana. But she is simply British.

    ...In 2010, her work was recognised by Okwui Enwezor who gave her an exhibition at Studio Museum in Harlem.[4] In addition to her artwork, Yiadom-Boakye has taught at the Ruskin School of ArtOxford University where she is a visiting tutor for their Master in Fine Arts programme.[5] Her influence as an Artist was recognised in the 2019 Powerlist and she was subsequently listed in the Top 10 of the most influential people of African or African Caribbean heritage in the UK in 2020.[6][7]....

    p.s. Okwui Enwezor who helped promote her career, and who tragically died recently, is now considered one of the greatest curators of all times internationally. I would like to be clear about that: not a great black curator, but a great curator.
