He is well-known for his work in theatre and now Peter Wilson is the subject of a different form of art.

A portrait of the Norwich Theatre Royal chief executive has been painted by Will Teather and it features in the artist's exhibition currently on display at the theatre.

The painting shows Mr Wilson, who is also the producer of The Woman in Black, sitting in the city theatre's auditorium with his feet up.

Mr Teather said: 'As an artist who draws inspiration from theatre, it is a great pleasure to have had sittings with the producer of The Woman in Black, a play that I find very inspiring.

'The portrait features a reference to Susan Hill, the writer of the original story for The Woman in Black, on a plaque on one of the seats behind Peter.'
