Amy Gladys Donovan

ARTIST

Donovan, Amy Gladys

1898 – 1984

Amy Gladys Donovan was the daughter of an officer in the Indian
army, and spent much of her early life in India. Upon moving
to England in 1911, her artistic ambitions were met with some
resistance from her family, but she eventually enrolled at the Slade
School of Fine Art. 

Between 1936 and 1938 she took part in numerous exhibitions,
including at the RBA, the NEAC and the Royal Cambrian
Academy. 

Struggling with familial disapproval, however, she moved away
from the experimental Impressionist works that garnered her original
success and spent her later years taking commissions for portraits.
