LONDON, July 5 (UPI) -- "Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait," a tribute to the late British singer-songwriter, has opened at London's Jewish Museum.

The 27-year-old recording artist died in 2011 of accidental alcohol poisoning after battling substance abuse for years.

The Telegraph said the museum exhibit includes items from the singer's distinctive wardrobe, as well as photos of how Winehouse's grandmother, Cynthia, was a huge influence on Amy's sense of style, as well as her personality.

"Our nan, Cynthia, was a strong woman. She claimed to be a medium, and taught Amy how to read tarot cards. She was so glamorous and never looked anything but her very best," Alex Winehouse, Amy's brother and co-curator of the exhibition told the newspaper.

Also on display are photos and artifacts showing how the Grammy-winning singer related to her loved ones.
