He is perhaps best remembered for shimmering and effervescent portrayals of the most glamorous women of his day, who queued to be recorded by his inimitable strokes.

He saw his subject as if through the eyes of a lover. His life was cut tragically short and his work largely overlooked in the annals of art history.

Divine People restores McEvoy to his rightful prominence in the constellation of twentieth-century British artists - the equal of many others from the famous Slade art school group to which he belonged.
