As an Anglo-Indian, born and brought up as an orphan in Calcutta, Norman Douglas Hutchinson soon discovered that he had a remarkable gift for drawing and painting which could change his life. This book describes the collision of eastern and western influences and values which have had such a powerful effect on the painter's vision and work, and how meetings with Annigoni and the patronage of Countess Mountbatten and the British royal family encouraged his developing talent and success as a portrait painter.
