To celebrate Bohun Gallery's long and personal association with one of Britain's best-loved artists, the Henley on Thames gallery will be marking Mary Fedden's Centenary with a major show of her very finest work including Royal Academy paintings, drawings, collages and the first survey of her early lithographs. Many of the paintings have not been seen since their first appearance at Royal Academy Summer shows which presents an exciting opportunity for Modern British collectors.
Please contact the gallery for further information (exhibition dates 7th Nov - 28th Nov 2015).
Mary Fedden was born in 1915 and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London from 1932 to 1936. She went on to teach Painting at the Royal College of Art from 1958 to 1964, the first woman tutor to teach in the Painting School, and subsequently taught at the Yehudi Menuhin School from 1965 to 1970.
Mary Fedden has exhibited in one-man shows throughout the UK every year since 1950. She has also received many mural commissions, notably the Festival of Britain in 1951, the P & O Liner Canberra in 1961, Charing Cross Hospital in 1980 (along with her husband, the artist Julian Trevelyan), and Colindale Hospital in 1985.
Mary Fedden was President of the Royal West of England Academy from 1984 to 1988 and was elected a Royal Academician in the Senior Order in 1992. She received an OBE and a Doctor of Literature, Bath University in the 1990s. Mary Fedden has worked from her Thames-side studio in London for the past 50 years. She is one of Britain's most respected and collectable artists and has produced some of her finest work during the past decade.
Bohun Gallery worked closely with Mary Fedden during her lifetime. She and her husband, Julian Trevelyan, first exhibited at Bohun Gallery in 1984 and regularly thereafter. The gallery continues to exhibit Mary's work regularly.
