James Hart Dyke has depicted secret service agents on covert missions. Now he has commemorated the most famous spy of all

When James Hart Dyke was asked by the head of MI6 to paint a series of studies of the real work of foreign secret service officers last year, he was keen to show just how hard and low-key their lives were. "It's not James Bond," he said.

Well, now it is. Hart Dyke has since been recruited to chronicle the long life of 007. The producers of the James Bond films, Barbara Broccoli and Eon Productions, commissioned Hart Dyke to paint each of the six Bond actors in the role as part of the celebration of 50 years of the dynamic franchise.
