Betty Swanwick RA, The Rooks

Betty Swanwick RA, The Rooks, 533 x 597mm

Betty Swanwick was born in London in I915 and lived in Sussex. She died in I989. Studied at Goldsmiths College School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Painter, in later years primarily in watercolour. She designed posters for London Transport and Shell, and murals for various organisations. The superbly drawn picture here is typical of the world she invented — a world, before the motor age, of large country houses and country scenes populated by simple people characterised by huge hands, large boots and shapeless clothing.
