Born in 1917 in Poland, Halima Nalecz came to Britain after the war and was horrified to find that you couldn't buy Modern Art of any description on Bond Street. To rectify this she opened her own gallery which she called The Drian Galleries - A homage to the artist Piet Mondrian who was one of her heroes.
Colleen Farr trained as an artist in the late 40’s and early 50’s. She went on to work with her Husband Bill Belcher in designing textiles, wallpapers and other household items. She was a painter basically in tempera which is a material using egg as the main medium combined with ground oil pigments.
This is a very good example of the quality and definition which can be achieved with egg tempera.
