Having studied at the Slade School of Art under the theatre designer Vladimir Polunin, painter Mary Fedden turned
from stage sets to portraits, albeit later creating murals for, among other locations, the 1951 Festival of Britain and Charing Cross Hospital (this latter in collaboration with her husband Julian Trevelyan). From 1984 to 1988 Fedden
was the President of the Royal West of England Academy. She was also the first female tutor at the Royal College of Art’s Painting School.

Portland Gallery represented Mary Fedden during her lifetime and now represent the estate of the popular Royal
Academician. This exhibition will comprise some of the best examples of Fedden’s works on paper and oils, from all periods of her career. Lizzie Comba, curator, talks on the artist’s life and practice.
