Own a Mary Fedden RA - A Unique Story

Mary Fedden OBE was a British artist born in Bristol in 1915 who always wanted to be an artist. It was while she was at the Slade she met printmaker and painter Julian Trevelyan. They married in 1951 and she lived with him in his studio and home near Hammersmith Bridge overlooking the Thames.
From 1956 to 1964 she taught at the Royal College of Art, where she was the first female tutor, and where her pupils included David Hockney and Allen Jones. From 1964 to 1974 she taught at the Yehudi Menuhin school.
