A study of key players at Cambridge University, and the characters beneath them, goes on display soon
Louise explained: “Far from being anonymous figures of authority, they each have a different approach according to their unique individual personalities.
“They chose what they would like to wear, medals for valour, top hats, Beefeaters Uniform, or a musketeer cape, sometimes reflecting their past in military service or police force. As with any other portrait I tried to capture each character in depth. I found humour and charm, and no hint of pretension.”
