Academic Study Of A Male Torso [Ailsa F Beaumont]

Regular price £135.00

DESCRIPTION

An academic study of a male torso from the portfolio of Ailsa F Beaumont (1894-1978). Ailsa was born in Enfield, Middlesex, to Ronald and Margaret, and the early part of her life was spent in Cookham, Berkshire. In 1918, she married Reginald Oliver Gray in Kensington, and they went on to have two children. Little is known of her artistic career beyond her promising early works but clearly she had a bright future.

We recently discovered a portfolio of her academic studies, which contained over 50 drawings and watercolours. Many of these were too damaged to list, but we’ve managed to salvage a few of the best. We’re hoping to return the remainder of the portfolio to her family.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
