Sheila Fell - A Passion for Paint
Talented, determined and charismatic, Sheila Fell was one of the very few women artists to achieve national recognition in the 1950s and 1960s and was one of the youngest artists ever to be elected a Royal Academician in 1974. Her tragic early death in 1979 cut short her burgeoning artistic career. This book, the first comprehensive study of her life and work, draws on previously unpublished letters and archive sources to establish Fell as a significant force in 20th-century British figurative painting. It includes reproductions of many hitherto unseen works to convey the diversity and power of her paintings and her original, transforming vision.
