Lot Essay

"For Yiadom-Boakye’s people push themselves forward, into the imagination—as literary characters do—surely, in part, because these are not really portraits. They have no models, no sitters. They are character studies of people who don’t exist."
—(Z. Smith, "Lynette Yiadom-Boakye's Imaginary Portraits," The New Yorker, 19 June 2017)
