A glass jar of irises, with two shells, on a pale pink and peach backdrop. Stones” impasto technique brings texture to the shells and petals, and shades of purple offset the greens and pinks of the composition.
Stones was educated at the Chelsea School of Art, and 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 arguably the foremost pastel artist of his time.
Provenance: the family of the artist.
