Mary Fedden is one of Britain's most acclaimed contemporary artists. Born in Bristol in 1915, she entered the Slade School of Art in 1932 and, during the fifties and sixties, taught at the Royal College of Art and at the Yehudi Menuhin School. It was appropriate that she should return to her West Country roots to become President of the Royal West of England Academy. She is a senior member of the Royal Academy and was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1992. She has lived and worked in London at her studio alongside the River Thames for more than fifty years.
Much of Mary Fedden’s work is characterized by the juxtaposition of a still life collection set against a distant view. Her oil painting ‘Whitby Harbour’ is typical of this style. She has depicted the harbour in previous paintings simply because she enjoys visiting friends in Whitby, but the choice of onions, garlic and courgette is something new, inspired by the patterns made by the knot in the leaves.
