Mabel Royds

MR purple budI have frequently been posting about 21st century artists and their work recently, so I thought I would do a post about an artist from the early 20th century, who’s work I have come across quite a few times on museum visits. Mabel Royds, an artist who studied at Slade best known for her woodcuts. Her two most well known series of colour prints are her Indian and Tibet scenes from the 1920s and her woodcuts of flowers that came after. Its understandable why her later work became so popular to exhibit at the time compared to her earlier pieces as they are far more bright and glamorous. See below. The original prints are in the care of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum London.
