The Julia Heseltine Collection
Julia Heseltine was born in London. Her mother, Anna Zinkeisen, and her aunt, Doris Zinkeisen, were well-known artists in the mid-twentieth century. Both excelled as portrait painters and, encouraged by her mother, Julia herself started painting at an early age. Julia studied at the Byam Shaw and the Royal Academy Schools. Winner of the Médaille D'Argent at the Paris Salon, she has painted many portraits, including one of Ted Hughes. She has been commissioned by Sir Laurence Olivier and Joan Plowright.
