Angela Stones (1914 – 1995)

Still Life with Pink Roses


Oil on board

47 x 37 cm

A beautiful still life which moves between pink and green: pink roses and bowl, and green leaves, apples, and plate. Stones’ impasto technique brings texture to the fruit and petals, and the blues and browns of the background highlight the brilliance of the roses.

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; gilt frame has a few repaired small losses.
