Stephen Bone (1904-1958):
Portrait of Mary Adshead, probably at work in the artist's garden at Haverstock Hill, London
Unframed (ref: 9911)
Oil on board
Provenance: The Artist's Family
Bone's rapidly painted 'en plein air' sketches were the subject of popular one-man shows at Leferve, Redfern, The Leceister Galleries and The Fine Art Society. His remarkable productivity (he aimed to paint at least one panel a day) was only curtailed by the fact that he died prematurely - at the age of 54. He painted his wife Mary at work on several occasions.
