PRESENTING PORTRAITIST DAVID DOWNTON
“David Downton has the magical gift… he restores in just a couple of measured, skillful and overlapping strokes and discreet highlights the quintessence of life, the ideogram of the mind, the light in someone’s eyes, that ‘mirror of the soul.’” – fashion designer Christian LaCroix.
One of the world’s most sought-after portraitists, David Downton, begins a landmark, one-year exhibition at Minotti LA starting April 24, 2017.
Downton is the leading fashion illustrator of modern times, and he has become one of the foremost contemporary portraitist of the 21st century. Some of the most beautiful and iconic women in the world have sat for Downton, and he has captured their unique spirit with his inimitable style of portraiture.
One of the most exciting announcements is that Downton will schedule a limited number of exclusive portrait commissions while he is in California.

“Blank beauty isn’t beauty after a while. The turn of the wheel in the gene pool is the opening play, but for any one of these women you have to add in intelligence, humor, dedication and work. It’s what you do with beauty that’s the interesting thing.” – David Downton in Vanity Fair.
