20th Century British Art

Evelyn Gibbs (1905-1991)

Printmaker, draughtsman, painter and teacher, born in Liverpool, where she studied at the School of Art, 1922-6; at the Royal College of Art, 1926-9; then at British School at Rome, 1929-31. Taught at Goldsmiths College of Art and showed at the RA, NEAC, RE and other major venues. Morley Gallery held a posthumous exhibition in 1994. Gibbs was a fine draughtswoman in the classical tradition and her work is held by the Arts Council, the Tate Gallery, the Ashmolean Museum and other public collections.

Like many of the artists who studied at the British School at Rome - Monnington and Stroudley, for instance - having amply demonstrated a remarkable facility for realism, she latterly moved increasingly towards abstraction.
