The Copley Prize
Commenting on her success, Amelia said: “It feels amazing to win. I feel proud of myself. My favourite hobbies are painting and dancing. Thank you for picking my picture".
And when asked how she would feel is someone paid £1.9m for one of her paintings one day, she said: “'I'd share it with my family and save some for me to buy a kinder egg and with the change I'd buy new paints and paint brushes and paper and new dance stuff.”
Claire Stewart, added: “Going to the Match is one of the most popular works in the collection – and the fact Amelia has captured this work from her own bedroom window is not dissimilar to Lowry’s own approach, which was to paint what he found in front of him.”
Noel and Alison Copley said: “We loved Amelia’s painting from the moment we saw it and were amazed when we found out she was only five years old. It’s a lovely painting and a worthy winner.”
