    FROM THE WARDROBE OF THE LATE SANDRA BLOW, RA

    The abstract artist Sandra Blow was born in London, and became one of the most important artists of her generation. She was known for her singular dress sense, as well as her impressive body of work. Her art was the subject of an exhibition at the Tate St Ives in 2001-2002.

    The selections from her wardrobe offered here are sold to benefit her charities, the Tibetan Nuns Project and Dr Hadwen's Trust.
