VAD Nurse 1940

Rosemary Rutherford (1912–1972)

The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art
Stained glass artist, painter and draughtsman who early in life lived in Broomfield, near Chelmsford, in Essex, where her father was rector for many years. Between the wars she showed at NEAC, after World War II being associated with Cedric Morris’ and Lett Haines’ East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing at Hadleigh, Suffolk. Rutherford was more known for stained glass than for pictures, but she had a real feeling for richly coloured pigment, as in The Dining Room, Michael and Valerie Chase Collection, Minories, Colchester, 1994. There was a Minories tribute show in 1972.
