Felicia Browne 1904- 1936, Sketch of a nude figure seen from behind [c.1928]
TGA 201023/1/12 (Tate Britain archive) This work will not be shown at the exhibition.
Through An artist’s Eye – a creative homage to British artist – Felicia Browne, is drawing to a heady conclusion at the end of the month and in the early days of October!
As the preparations continue, we have some exciting news about the supporting material for our exhibition in Esher, which incidentally is barely 5 minutes down the road from Hampton Court. Do check the link for all our events.
Felicia Browne’s drawings and letters, some of which are held in an archive at Tate Britain, were bequeathed to and carefully kept by her friend and fellow artist Elizabeth Watson. Subsequently they were inherited by Elizabeth’s three children, Felicia, Lin and Jim, the latter of whom – along with his wife Deborah – have been working with us to present these previously unseen examples of Felicia’s drawings.
We’re thrilled to announce that there will be 17 reproductions of unseen works on show, to support our narrative framework of the 7 key stages in Felicia’s life, leading up to her untimely death in Spain.
We’re not able to share examples of the unseen works online – so come along and view! Don’t miss out!
