Hello I’m wondering would you have some information on the artist Mary Hoad we have a picture by her.
Hi, I don’t know much about her beyond what’s on here – http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/art/artist/maryhoad/ – but she did submit a lot of work to Pictures for Schools (the 1969 exhibition catalogue has a short dedication to her, as she died the previous year, saying that she had been involved in the exhibitions since the start as both a selector of artworks and an exhibiting artist). She was active in education in Hertfordshire. In 1943 she became editor of the Society for Education in Art’s journal Athene, and wrote a lot about the need for children to exposed to good works of art.
Hey that’s been really helpfull. If you know of anyone interested in buying the picture I’ll send you a shot of it.
How did you come to have the picture, out of interest?
