Oil on Canvas
An original vintage oil on canvas of female nude and bird, by Patrica Dearden. Born in India and educated first at the Convent of Sainte Marie in Cannes, and then the Loretto Convent College in Calcutta. Her work fuses the colourful frenzy of India with the serenty of Provence in France. She has exhibited at the Academy of Fine Art in Calcutta, and has met and worked with a number of prestigous artists including Rabindranath Tagore. She studied etching under William Haytor in Paris, exhibiting at the Salon d’ete. After returning to Cornwall, she was very much a part of the local art scene, her work being sponsored by Barbara Hepworth for an exhibition which included the artists own sculptures.
