MAUD SUMNER REDISCOVERED (article first published : 2004-04-5; last edited : 2008-08-2)

The Association of Arts in Pretoria reports that a delightful collection of 32 watercolours and nude figure studies by Maud Sumner has been discovered in Pretoria. They mainly cover her early career but a few are later works. Scenes from France and England form the main part of the collection. One work could be of her grandfather's home, Eathorpe Park, in England.

The works are done with great freedom, although some are more detailed. Nearly all the works are signed, and a few are preliminary studies for later works in oil. Together the collection forms an exciting comment on Maudís free style, done with verve and strength.

This is truly a discovery, and could enable those who have always wanted to add a Sumner to their collection an opportunity to do so at a reasonable price.

Maud Sumner Rediscovered can be viewed from April 15 to 29 at the Association of Arts Pretoria. A lecture and slide show on the artist and her work will be given by Dr Albert Werth on April 21 at 19h00.

More information from the Association of Arts Pretoria on 012 346 3100.
