Lubaina Himid
Carrot Piece, 1985
Drawing on Himid's training in theatre design, this cut-out piece comments on the 'carrot' of opportunity dangled in front of artists by museums.

Barbara Hepworth
Winged Figure, 1963
I love how this is on one of London's busiest streets, stuck to the side of John Lewis, yet people often don't realise its there. Art hides in unsuspecting places.

Paula Rego
The Family, 1988
As a painter myself, Rego's work has always been inspiring. Her narratives are transportive and ambiguous, always centralising strong women.
