The Inlaid Tray, Mary Fedden

The Inlaid Tray, Mary Fedden

A celebration of one of Britain's best-loved artists and former RWA president. Celebration draws on a lifetime of work from the 1950s to the present day.

Assembled from public and private collections, the show celebrates Fedden's favourite motifs: still life, flowers, animals and landscape. During the 1940s to 1960s, Fedden's vibrant early work was inspired by the French painter, Henri Mattisse, and surrealism. Her work has inspired many prints.

Fedden trained at the Slade School of Art and was the first woman to teach painting at the Royal College of Art; David Hockney was one of her pupils. She was married to the English surrealist artist and printmaker, Julian Treveleyn.

Still working in her late 90s, Fedden is an inspiration to artists and non-artists alike.

A limited number of signed giclee prints are available from the RWA shop. Find out more by downloading the sale sheet, or contact the Academy on 0117 973 5129 or info@rwa.org.uk.
