Fedden, Mary: Chiswick – SOLD
A very stylish lithograph combining dynamic abstract motifs with an unusual but highly appealing palate, signed, inscribed and framed. Although they were not numbered, only a relatively small number of these prints were produced and they are therefore, hard to find.
The lithograph was produced as a contribution to the Royal College of Art’s series of prints, ‘From Wapping to Windsor’.

Born in Bristol, Mary Fedden studied at the Slade School of Art from 1932 to 1936, returning to Bristol to teach art and making a living by painting portraits. Following service during the Second World War, she held her first exhibition at the Mansard Gallery in 1947, showing a number of still life and flower paintings which were to become recurrent themes in her work.
She moved to Durham Wharf in 1949, a complex of studios on the Thames at Chiswick. She married the artist Julian Trevelyan in 1951 and they travelled widely. She held regular exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery, the New Grafton Gallery and many other galleries throughout Britain. From the late 1950s she taught painting at the Royal College of Art. She was elected to the Royal Academy in 1992.
Mary Fedden is a hugely popular and highly collected artist whose works continue to increase in value.
