Oil on canvas by the renowned artist Perpetua Pope.
She was born in Solihull, Warwickshire, but to Aberdonian parents, and the family returned to Aberdeenshire for her to attend school and enjoy a rural upbringing which would feed her art for a lifetime. Her father was in business and was a perceptive and passionate art buyer, planting a seed for the future interests of his only daughter.
She attended Edinburgh College but her diploma was interrupted by the war, during which she gave service in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). Moray House and teaching came next and among several posts she was art mistress at Oxenfoord from where many girls became firm, long-term friends.
She eventually lectured on art at Moray House before she retired in 1973, always feeling herself to be a painter who taught rather than a teacher who painted.
Here is her obituary in the Scotsman;
Her work has been sold at Bonhams, Christie's and her work is in private collections all over the world. In this picture the peat moss is beautifully rendered against a steely sky. The oil is used in impasto very sparingly, only when needed. Her work will continue to gain admirers.
Size is 19x15 inches excluding frame.
