On Doubling. From the late s onwards, Adnams became known for her distinctive Surrealist paintings, and exhibited in local galleries and in London, including at the British Art Centre and the Modern Art Gallery. In she was the subject of a retrospective at Derby Art Gallery. She became a prominent muralist, creating decorations for both public and private spaces, including the British Pavilion at the Paris International Exhibition.
As a noteworthy female artist, Adshead exhibited frequently at the WIAC from the mid —s, before serving on their committee in Working at a time when expectations of women were still largely confined to issues of domesticity, her prodigious professional output was noteworthy. Her approach to mural painting — especially in her choice of subjects and her colourful palette — challeged the perceived divisions which determined that public and private spaces should necessarily be treated differently.
She was the subject of a retrospective at Liverpool Art Gallery in Over the next decade her work became increasingly Surrealist, and she contributed artworks to the International Surrealist Exhibition in London. Agar painted radical works that explored female sexuality and womanhood. Her autobiography, A Look at My Life , was published in John of the Cross , and he painted the motif throughout his career.
Aitchison also depicted animals, desert landscapes, and human portraits; many of his recurring subjects—such as a Bedlington terrier, which he owned—held personal significance for the artist.

Aitchison aimed to achieve luminous yet translucent coloring in his paintings. Warm and fading, they reflect the sentimentality of his memories from childhood. With thanks to Artsy. After finishing university, Aldridge settled in London, taught himself to paint and held his first mixed exhibition in In , he presented his first one man-show at the Leicester Galleries in London and in he exhibited at the Venice Biennale art exhibition in Italy.
In , at age 28, Aldridge, and his cats, moved to Great Bardfield in the Essex countryside and acquired 'Place House'. He quickly became a friend of his neighbour, Edward Bawden, himself a painter. In , Aldridge joined the British Intelligence Corps as an officer interpreting aerial photographs. After leaving the army in , Aldridge returned to landscape painting. Although he was a skilled 'plein air' painter, many works were produced in his studio at his home; his subjects were the Essex countryside, scenes from his many visits to Italy and to Mallorca, and his much-loved garden at Place House.

At the same time, other artists started moving to Great Bardfield, making the village a dynamic centre for the visual arts. These well-organised shows attracted thousands of art lovers. At these summer exhibitions, Aldridge exhibited his oils while Lucy exhibited her hand-knitted rugs. Although Aldridge's work was well-received, it seemed the most conservative of the Great Bardfield Artists as it possibly reflected the art scene of the s and s in Britain. The early s saw the Bardfield art community fragment but Aldridge would remain in Place House until his death.
He died in , his wife Gretl having deceased a few months earlier. When only seventeen years old he went to Tangier in the company of his father and Joseph Crawhall. He is known as an animal and bird painter, but also produced landscapes of his native Scotland. A great traveller he visited Egypt in and stayed for four years living on a Nile houseboat near Cairo.

Although badly injured and having an artificial leg, Allen continued to paint and became Balfour's confidential secretary. From he painted full-time and joined the new Yorkshire Group of Artists. He also travelled in Ireland and was elected a member of the RBA in Although Allen's early work is conventionally realistic he soon developed his distinctive style of simplified landscape and figure studies, which eventually were shown abroad in Canada and America.
In the early s Allen published a series of articles in The Artist on landscape painting in which he expounded his approach. There was a memorial show at Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield, in and in Lived in Ecclesall, Sheffield. He was a British artist, considered to be of the Neo-Romantic school. Allen held a solo exhibition at the Walker's Galleries, London, in , for which the catalogue's introductory essay was written by his fellow painter Brian Thomas.
Pictures were purchased by T. The strain of the exhibition left him, after a while, unable to paint for eight years. In , after being asked to paint a tribute to Cardinal Newman, h e converted to Roman Catholicism at Abingdon. He died in Allinson was the eldest son of a doctor, Thomas Allinson, whose advocacy of vegetarianism and contraception had led to his being struck off, and a German Jewish portrait painter.
After leaving Wycliffe College, Allinson began studying medicine, but gave this up and turned instead to art, gaining a scholarship in his second year at the Slade School of Fine Art. Graduating in , he travelled to Europe to study in Paris and in Munich. Following his first exhibition, at the Alpine Club Gallery, in February , he became one of the founding members of the Camden Town Group, and with other members later joined with the Vorticists to form The London Group. He also designed sets for the Beecham Opera Company.

His style is naturalistic but subdued, featuring gentle lines and delicate watercolours, but with great attention to particular details. The British Library published an illustrated bibliography of his works in Her severe physical disability, probably caused by childhood polio—which confined her to crutches, and, from her mid-thirties, to a wheelchair—rarely prevented her from pursuing her ambitions, or attracting admiring attention.
She excelled at art school, publishing her first illustration, in Pall Mall Magazine, at sixteen, yet her interests shifted toward writing for the theatre. Through a combination of personal acquaintance and initiative, she attracted the attention of eminent theatrical figures, notably Sir Charles Wyndham, Mary Moore, and Mrs Patrick Campbell. While she was in her early twenties several of her plays were staged, including Mrs Jordan, with Campbell in the title role.
Her family moved to London, where she mixed in artistic circles, associating with, among others, Richard Le Gallienne, Alice Meynell, and Gertrude Hudson. Her 'Princess' series in the St James's Gazette, dramatizing the dilemmas of modern womanhood, appeared as The Boudoir Critic in , the same year as her first novel, An April Princess, about a young woman's rebellion against her philistine Victorian family.
The works were, to an extent, self-referential. Smedley had two nicknames among her intimate circle: the Princess, a tribute to her benevolence and fantastical imagination; and Peter the fairy-tale miller's third son , recognizing her longing for masculine freedom and adventure. The books, the first of over forty, coincided with the beginning of Smedley's career as founder and honorary secretary of the International Lyceum Clubs for Women Artists and Writers, established to provide professional women with institutional support.
In her vision the clubs were pioneering. She aspired, not only to enable women to compete equally with men, but to create a democratic, non-hierarchical, centre for worldwide cultural exchange, and travelled across Europe, helping women in Amsterdam , Berlin , Paris , and Florence to open clubhouses.
Despite ambassadorial and administrative commitments Smedley continued to write for adults and children. Works published during her Lyceum years include Conflict , a novel about the unsheltered lives of working women, and Women: a Few Shrieks , a feminist polemic. Her encounters in the art world, through the Lyceum, eventually led her away from the institution. Meetings in Germany with Count Harry Kessler and Ruth St Denis were particularly important for the development of her beliefs and theatre practice.
Kessler, the art patron who promoted Gordon Craig, encouraged her dedication to international peace and synthetic theatre. St Denis, the modernist dancer, identified rhythm as the basis of all art, and introduced Smedley to the Christian Science church, of which she became a lifelong member.
On 20 January Smedley married Maxwell Ashby Armfield — , painter, illustrator, and writer. They had an unconventional partnership: her handicap, and his sexual preference for men, precluded full marital relations, and thus children. Yet their intense working relationship, and romantic friendship, led to fertile collaboration in literature and theatre. Upon their marriage Smedley resigned from the Lyceum, and they set up house at The Uplands, Minchinhampton and from at Rodborough Common in the Cotswolds, writing and illustrating books together.
They founded the Cotswold Players, for which they both wrote plays, developing symbolist performance techniques, and a philosophy of communal, democratic art. At the outbreak of the First World War the Armfields moved to Glebe Place, Chelsea, en route for America, where they hoped to participate in the 'little theatre' scene.
At the end of they procured visas for America, where they directed and taught Greenleaf drama for seven years, basing themselves in New York and Berkeley..
Armfield, however, wanted more seclusion, so, to Smedley's regret, they returned to England in , setting up a Greenleaf studio at Mockbeggar Hill, Ibsley, the New Forest, and then at 8a Clareville Grove, South Kensington. Her publications during the s included Tales from Timbuktu , for children , Justice Walk , Greenleaf Rhythmic Plays —5 , and Greenleaf Theatre Elements —6, theatre textbooks.
Her autobiography, Crusaders , which unabashedly promotes herself and her work, captures her theatrical extravagance and warmth of character. Deteriorating health and finances blighted Constance Smedley's last decade. The Greenleaf folded, and her publications dwindled. Her death may have been avoidable, but her Christian Scientist faith discouraged her from receiving treatment for her final illness, or for the cataracts that afflicted her towards the end of her life.
Her final obscurity has clouded her earlier achievements, yet her eloquence, inventiveness, and audacity, conveyed through all her projects, have made a lasting impact. Her writing remains fresh and persuasive, while the Cotswold Players and International Lyceum Clubs continue to thrive. His work is held by the British Museum, provincial and overseas galleries. During World War I, with his writer wife Constance Smedley, Armfield attempted to set up a high-flown peoples' Greenleaf Theatre in his studio, an abortive venture amusingly recalled by Margaret Gardiner in her book A Scatter of Memories.
Armfield was a painter of landscape and still life well crafted and full of detail. Lived in Bath, Somerset. He was born in Hastings, Sussex. He held his first one-man show at the Leicester Galleries in In he became a member of Unit One, after which his work took on a surrealist character. For the Festival of Britain , he was commissioned to produce The Storm, and exhibited extensively at the RA from that year.
Armstrong had strong left-wing political convictions and from the time of the Spanish Civil War, when he painted Pro Patria, his pictures occasionally reflected his views. Symbolism is also a feature of his work. Armstrong's pictures are fastidiously painted in muted colours and reflect his own dry wit and gentle nature. Along with John Banting, he is one of only a handful of British artists whose oeuvre can be correctly described as surrealist. The RA held a memorial exhibition in He lived in London.

While working in Bodley's office Ashbee lived at Toynbee Hall, the pioneer University Settlement in Whitechapel, where he initiated classes in art and craft that became the nucleus of the School of Handicraft and the Guild of Handicraft The Guild is now chiefly known for the metalwork and jewellery designed by Ashbee himself, and for the furniture made for the Grand Duke of Hesse in collaboration with the designer M. For a while the Guild's affairs prospered, but from the receipts from the craftwork fell off disastrously and by the company was forced into voluntary liquidation.
Ashbee continued throughout this period with his architectural practice, which brought in a number of decorative commissions to the Guild.

The couple had an open marriage, both taking lovers throughout their lives. Vanessa Bell had affairs with art critic Roger Fry and with the painter Duncan Grant, with whom she had a daughter, Angelica in , whom Clive Bell raised as his own child. She is considered one of the major contributors to British portrait drawing and landscape art in the 20th century.
In , following the death of his father, he moved back to Paris with his family. After he had finished school there, he studied at the studio of Carolus Duran, and spent long hours copying at the Paris museums. He soon became familiar with the leading painters and intellectuals of the day, and became a founder member of the Salon d'Automne, exhibiting alongside the Impressionists and associating with Emile Zola, Oscar Wilde, Albert Moore, Renoir, Degas, Helleu and Toulouse-Lautrec. Toulouse-Lautrec and Belleroche were exact contemporaries, who first met at the age of eighteen.
Belleroche painted Toulouse-Lautrec's portrait and shared with him a passion for the model Lili, who epitomised the Belle Epoch aesthetic of Toulouse-Lautrec's most celebrated posters. Lili became Belleroche's favourite model and mistress. In Belleroche also met the already acclaimed American painter John Singer Sargent, who recognised Belleroche's talent and empathised with his free drawing style and sensitivity to light. They became life-long friends.
Sargent's handling of pastel was a great inspiration to Belleroche, while Belleroche's sensitivity to tone and creation of form through the modeling of light exerted a strong influence on Sargent. In , Belleroche became fascinated by the medium of lithography and by he was a leading figure in the field of lithographic portraiture. Hind, a former keeper of prints at the British Museum, described his works in lithography as "amongst the greatest achievements of the craft since its discovery.

As however he had no need to live from his art, he rarely took on commissioned portraits, instead choosing models and sitters who interested him. This in part - though not entirely - explains why he is so little known. He was the subject of numerous publications during his lifetime, and in the San Diego Museum of Art organised an exhibition and produced a catalogue entitled The Rival of Painting: the Lithographs of Albert Belleroche.
For just as the war of was recorded by his father, the conflict was recorded by his son, Jean. He not only studied at the Beaux-Arts, and with his father, but was also a favourite pupil of the famous 19th Century French military painter, Edouard Detaille, who firmly believed in him as a future great military painter. As soon as hostilities broke out, Berne-Bellecour was among the first to rally to the Front as a combatant and took part in the Battle of the Marne.
Here, in spite of fine personal heroism, he was able to sketch several scenes in connection with that great historical event, which was met with immediate and enthusiastic success in military circles. His superior officers applied to the War Office for permission for him to be allowed to visit the entire line of French trenches, where he was given leave to roam at ease over the battlefield, sketching here and there at will, and often running great risks. Berne-Bellecour's "Souvenirs du Front" met with such success in Great Britain, that he was invited to visit the British Front and produce a similar document depicting the life of the British soldier under fire.
He was afforded every facility to see the Tommies at their work, and all latitude and freedom were given him along the line. These works were reproduced in "Dans les Lignes Anglaises" - a collection of studies from the British Front - part of a second volume of sketches that he made from the beginning of the war, with this particular painting amongst them.
His sketches are a remarkable series of life-like evocations of the daily routine of warfare. Admirers of the work of this very fine French artist will remark that his method is that of an artist equally gifted as a portrait and as a landscape painter. One consists in the mere rapid sketches taken in the midst of action, sometimes even under the most terrible conditions. Another method is that of the complete war picture - usually some war episode which the artists evolves graphically from his own notes and interprets later in his own studio.
But the third method - the one adopted by Berne-Bellecour - is that of the more finished sketch produced almost in the heat of action upon the battlefield. At times, the artist has begged some soldier engaged in his perilous work to sit for him for a few moments while he notes some characteristic detail. Thus, we feel as we look upon his drawings, the vivid truth and intense reality of the scene his pencil depicts.
Their realism teaches us a magnificent lesson. The tall young officer, hands thrust into his pockets, a pipe in his mouth is bending his head down to watch one of his own men fill his own pipe with tobacco. He does not question the whys and wherefores of the great, incomprehensible, absurd and supreme mystery. He is quietly determined and obeys his superiors without comment. And this, in the opinion of Berne-Bellecour, is the characteristic trait of the British soldier which entirely distinguishes him from his French comrade. In he produced a celebrated series of watercolours, which were reproduced as photogravure prints in a portfolio entitled Dans les Lignes Anglaises.
In he held his first one-person show at the Baillie Gallery. Bevan was an early member of the short-lived Fitzroy Street Group, a forerunner of the Camden Town Group of which he was a founder member in His paintings are highly prized and he is regarded as a leading British painter of the early years of the 20th Century.

After returning to New Zealand from her studies in Paris, she met fellow artist John Hutton — Together, they embarked on a successful and prolific collaborative relationship eventually marrying in , holding a joint exhibition in Wellington in before relocating to London that same year.

Many of her paintings also contain classical or biblical references, particularly her landscapes, which recall the backdrops to the figure paintings of the Old Masters.
Many of these were shown at exhibitions in Cambridge where she lived until her death in She also wrote many other books - on Rug weaving, Gemstone craft, Mosaics and Woven structures. In his early work he excelled at creating the world of childhood in a series of works which paid detailed attention to ephemera: comics, badges, cigarette cards and packets. Between he travelled in Holland, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain on a Leverhulme research award studying popular art. In his collector's instinct found outlet in the collages and reliefs he began making, many of them using kitsch items, pop stars or other aspects of popular culture.

In his post-graduate year he studied engraving. In the Oxford University Press published his engravings illustrating Border ballads.
Bliss then received a number of commissions, including a commission to write A History of Wood Engraving. In Bliss married Phyllis Dodd, who was a painter. Encouraged by his wife Bliss took up painting again, painting oil and watercolour landscapes in Scotland and England.
Coincidentally his paintings record the end of an era of small-holding. He also painted some urban scenes just before the towns were transformed by high rise and high-density buildings. In the s Bliss established the Blackheath Society, which continues today to attempt to protect the amenity of life in south-east London.
After the war he was appointed Director of the Glasgow School of Art. He referred to Glasgow as "the greatest industrial city in the Empire". Bliss was instrumental in saving much of the Art Nouveau architecture and furniture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He continued as Director from until Bliss's own art was exhibited around Britain.
There was an exhibition of his work in the Glasgow School of Art, in the northern hemisphere summer of Much of the work of Bliss's youth has been lost.

An exhibition catalogue, Andrew Dixon Gallery, London, Published by Lund Humphries, London, Bone achieved early success in book illustration using woodcuts before he turned to painting and art criticism.
He became disillusioned with the Slade and left in to begin illustrating books, with woodcuts, for his mother and other writers. In he was the subject of a joint exhibition at the Goupil Gallery, alongside Rodney Joseph Burn, and in he painted a mural for the underground station at Piccadilly Circus. In he married the artist Mary Adshead and they were to have two sons and a daughter.
The couple travelled extensively across Britain and Europe which allowed Bone to paint outdoors in all weathers and develop a style of bright landscape painting that proved popular and sold well at a number of gallery exhibitions. In June Bone was appointed by the War Artists' Advisory Committee to be a full-time salaried artist to the Ministry of Information specialising in Admiralty subjects.
The post had originally being held by Stephens father, Muirhead Bone, but following the death of Gavin Bone, Stephens brother, Muirhead decided not to continue with the commission. Stephen produced a large quantity of works showing naval craft and coastal installations around Great Britain. He recorded the Normandy landings, painted scenes in Caen and Courseulles after the invasion and went on to record the assault on Walcheren Island in the Netherlands. Towards the end of he travelled to Norway and painted the wreck of the Tirpitz.

After the War, Bone found his style of painting somewhat out of fashion and, although he continued to paint, he found it difficult to get his work exhibited. He became an art critic for the Manchester Guardian, wrote humorous pieces for the Glasgow Herald and did television and radio work for the BBC.
With his wife, he wrote and illustrated children's books.
