A committed socialist, Clough was the niece of the celebrated designer Eileen Gray and studied at the Chelsea School of Art, where her tutors included Graham Sutherland, Ceri Richards, Henry Moore, Robert Medley and Julian Trevelyan. After the war she became loosely associated with the 'Neo-Romantic' artists, and was close friends with Keith Vaughan, Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde. In the post-war years her art increasingly excluded the figure to concentrate instead on the traces left by human activity, and to focus on the surface of the canvas.
