Join Philip Smith as he takes us on a tour of the superb selection of works by Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan featuring in our forthcoming auction on 30th April.
The works by Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan featuring in our Spring edition of Modern Made, from four different private collections, include early pictures by both artists. Fedden first met Trevelyan when she was a student at the Slade in the 1930s, and had declared on the spot she knew he was the man she would marry – something that proved correct in 1951. They remained the closest of companions for the next 40 years, pursuing their artistic endeavours from Durham Wharf in Hammersmith - a house and studio on the banks of the Thames that Trevelyan had bought in 1935.
Lyon & Turnbull are delighted to offer several auctions a year across the UK featuring to Modern British painting, sculpture, prints and drawings - including MODERN MADE in London.
