Adam and Eve by Mary Piercy Hornsey College of Art, impasto oil on board


Mary Piercy (20th Century British). Mary Piercy grew up in Hampstead, and in the late 1950s attended Hornsey College of Art. She provided illustrations for the 1959 first issue of "Ambit" literary magazine, which continues to be published today. In the 1960s she had a solo exhibition in Oxford; as a member of the Hampstead Artists' Council, she was closely involved with organising and exhibiting at the "Open-Air Art Exhibitions" in Hampstead; she also sold works in Canada at this time. Later she made props for various leading ballet companies, including the Royal Ballet Covent Garden and also for television, notably on early episodes of "Dr Who".She experimented with a range of styles in her art and was particularly influenced by Gauguin and Picasso, but her pictures always have a bold, forceful, expressive quality that is distinctively her own.
Size is 37x19 inches. Age related wear on frame
