Angela Stones (1914 – 1995)
Old London Bridge Fantasia (1968)
Oil on board
56 x 43 cm
Signed lower left.
A fantasia inspired by Old London Bridge on the Thames. The grey dome of St Paul’s peeps over the bridge; bright lights burn in the background, throwing yellows and red reflections onto the water. Moored boats bob gently in the foreground.
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.
Condition: very good.
