Angela Stones (1914-1995)

Oil on canvasboard

Stones was a member of an artistic dynasty. Her mother Dorothy Bradshaw (1893-1983) studied under Jack Merriott – the artist famous for his British Rail posters, and her son, Christopher Assheton-Stones (1947-1999) was probably the foremost pastel artist of his time.

Here a generous use of impasto captures the texture of a Helianthus – Sunflower. A suggestion perhaps of surrealism in choice of colours helps with the mid-century feel of the painting.
