Reflections of an Artist: Madeline Green, 1884-1947
11 February - 1 November 2020
In 2020 we put the spotlight back on local artist Madeline Green.
A modernist figurative artist, Madeline Green grew up and lived most of her life in Ealing – where she helped to found the Ealing Art Guild, known today as the Ealing Art Group. From 1906 she studied at the prestigious drawing and painting schools at the Royal Academy of Arts, at a time when John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse and George Clausen were visiting teachers, and where she twice won awards for her exceptionally life-like sketches.
A versatile artist across 2D media, Green was well received by contemporaries, exhibiting at 18 galleries across the UK, Dublin, Venice and Paris, including 24 times at the Royal Academy.
