Lucy Harwood was a British artist who studied art at the Slade just before the outbreak of the First World War. She had initially intended to be a professional pianist, but turned her attentions to visual art after becoming partially paralysed. She was one of the first students to enrol at Cedric Morris’ East Anglian School of Drawing and Painting, where she focused on painting Post-Impressionist landscapes, painting just with her left hand. She moved to Upper Layham in Suffolk and is known for her landscapes of the area.
Condition: generally very good. Handsome hand-finished frame.
Provenance: Louise Kosman, Edinburgh.
