Angela Stones (1914 – 1995)

From Battersea Bridge (before Redevelopment)


Oil on board

40 x 50 cm

Stones’ view of the Thames and Chelsea Bridge, painted from Battersea Bridge. The artist’s use of impasto, particularly evident in her depiction of the rambunctious white clouds above the bridge, lends a liveliness to the painting.

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.
