Morley Gallery: Talk with Lucy Hughes-Hallett
March 18, 2019 @ 12:00 am - April 6, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Cooper’s daughter-in-law, the award winning author Lucy Hughes-Hallett, appraises her work and describes how it has been brought back to light.
In the 1930s Suzanne Cooper, then in her early twenties, was being hailed as an outstanding painter and wood-engraver, her work being likened to that of contemporaries Christopher Wood and Eric Ravilious. Then came the war, and she laid aside her artistic ambitions. After her death her family found her paintings stacked away under the spare room bed. Now this forgotten female modernist is being rediscovered, with an exhibition, at the Morley Gallery April 1 -6, greeted as ‘revelatory’.
