10 June – 16 July 2021

We are delighted to announce an exhibition of works on paper by one of Britain’s most important modern female painters. The lover of Auguste Rodin and sister of the flamboyant artist Augustus John, her work was often overlooked, yet she was amongst the first female students to study at the Slade School of Art and exhibited with major galleries and at important exhibitions, including the New English Art Club, the Société des Artistes Français and the Salon d’Automne. Her paintings, many of female sitters and quiet domestic interiors, are notable for being subtly rendered in a close range of tones. This exhibition will comprise watercolours, gouaches and pencil drawings from the 1910’s and 1920’s including still-lifes, informal portraits and studies of cats.
