Goats (Lanzarote) is among the pricier works by her hand, however, and is one of the stars in a dedicated show at Portland Gallery this month.

Running from November 10-December 2, the exhibition in St James’s, London, features almost 50 paintings, drawings and collages spanning the artist’s career. These include some of her most popular types of scenes: colourful still-lifes, other-worldly landscapes and figurative paintings. Prices start at £3500.

Goats, an unusually large-scale work at 3ft x 4ft (91cm x 1.22m), was completed in oil on board in 1987.

It was inspired by travels with her husband and fellow Mod Brit artist Julian Trevelyan.

Jamie Anderson, director of Portland Gallery, says: “Pulling together the paintings and works on paper which constitute this exhibition was a real voyage of discovery, despite being so familiar with her work.”

He observes that the practice of buying her works is “hereditary, with each new generation finding fresh pleasure in viewing and owning her paintings”.
