Mid C20th - Painting

Edna Mann - Bomberg, Borough & Beyond

With this group of 14 paintings from the 1950s and 1960s we trace Edna Mann’s development from pupil of David Bomberg, and founder of the Borough Group, to an independent artist with her own unique vision.

Having been cast out by Bomberg from his inner circle, for the apparent crime of getting pregnant and becoming a mother, Edna was able to experiment more freely with abstraction than her former associates. In this rare group of paintings sourced from her son’s attic one can see the variety of influences that followed after Borough.
