Stella Mary Newton OBE was painted in 1991 by Tim Wheeler for her 90th Birthday Celebrations. The commission was made by Stella's friends and family and presented to her at a party held at the Art Workers Guild. Channel Four made a film at the time. The program shows the painting of the portrait by Tim Wheeler and interviews with Stella and her friends.

There was a need to celebrate both Stella and also the home at 3 Cumberland Gardens that she and her husband, the eminent Art Critic, Eric Newton MBE. It was their home ever since the Second World War. In the room are many of the beautiful paintings and sculptures that they had collected together. Her favourite piece was the mobile by Alexander Calder, which is shown in the middle distance.

When Stella died shortly after her hundredth birthday. Her contents of her home was dispersed by the executor and all the art works sold for the benefit of the Holy Redeemer Church in Exmouth Market and Sesame equally.
