Mary Fedden, 1915 - 2012

Mary Fedden, Feather and Two Stones, 2008
Mary Fedden died on 22nd June 2012. Read obituaries by Michael McNay and in The Telegraph.
McNay describes Fedden as an artist who brought to perfection a style that married a very English sensibility to a modern European one. Fedden's 'studiedly' naive still-lifes drew on an aesthetic associated with the work of British painters Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood as well as taking influence from Braque and Matisse.
