Provenance: The Ansdell Gallery, London

See illustration


In 1948, when Pat Cooke was thirteen, L.S.Lowry came to live at "The Elms" in her village of Mottram-in-Longdendale. The two struck up a friendship that lasted the rest of Lowry's life. They went on many sketching trips together to locations including Nantwich, Lytham St Annes, Ireland and Sunderland.

Lowry encouraged her to find which subjects she liked, keep a limited palette and not to be influenced to change her natural style. Unlike Mr Lowry, Pat enjoyed visiting lively places such as night clubs and wine bars and many of her works are influenced by overheard conversations.

Cooke studied at the Slade School of Art and University College London before becoming a teacher. After nine years of teaching she then decided to become a full time artist and illustrator. She has held over forty exhibitions in locations including London, Amsterdam, Manchester, Dublin, Liverpool , Salford, Bolton and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. She has also written and worked for newspapers, magazines and television.

Signed, inscribed and dated (19)53, mixed media, 50cm by 36.5cm

Born in Hornsey in 1894, Eve Disher studied at the College of Art before moving to London to work for the Fire Service during WWI.

She married the theatre critic Maurice Disher in 1918 and they took lodgings in a house in Gordon Square belonging to the Strachey family. Lytton Strachey was a founder member of the Bloomsbury group who introduced Eve to other members such as Virginia Woolf and Duncan Grant.

Disher loved to travel and spent many winters in Jamaica where she painted Noel Coward and met Ian Fleming. It is possible that this example was painted on one of these vacations.
