DESCRIPTION

Provenance:
The Artist’s Family

Edith Granger-Taylor began painting as a child, attending the Royal Academy Schools (1910), St. John’s Wood Art School, and the Slade School of Fine Art for a term in 1919, where she studied under Henry Tonks.

The artist’s grandson writes that ‘her oil studies of this period, Edie was beginning to emphasise an aspect of colour and shape ‚Äì of pattern ‚Äì that would come to define her later, more modern’ and often near-abstract style.’ 

We are grateful to Nicholas Granger-Taylor for his assistance.

THE ARTIST

Granger-Taylor, Edith

1887 – 1958

Edith Granger-Taylor began painting as a child, attending the
Royal Academy Schools (1910), St. John’s Wood Art School,
and the Slade School of Fine Art for a term in 1919, where she
studied under Henry Tonks. She also returned to the Slade in the
early 1930s to study stage design. 

She exhibited numerously in the 1920s and 1930s, including
at the NEAC, the RE exhibition in 1935, and with solo shows at
the Grosvenor Galleries (1922) and Beaux Arts Gallery (1932).
However, her increasing frustration as a female artist working
in the inter-war years, showcased in paintings such as Allegory
(1934) (which she referred to as a “delicate feminist satire”),
caused her to retreat from the art world, and after the 1930s her
work would not be exhibited again in her lifetime.
