Works made to order


Jean-Baptiste Martin likes to work to commission - portraits or other works conceptualised by the client.


In some ways, a commission can seem easier because guidelines for the work have been laid down; but when a subject is specified in this way, there are other challenges - giving form to an idea, an emotion or a theme chosen by another person can be complex. Understanding the client’s wishes is an essential part of working to commission, and the resulting dialogue is a rich and interesting part of the commissioning process.
