Valence House Museum
Civic Centre, Dagenham (detail), oil on canvas by Kiddier, Ronald L., b.1924, photo credit: Valence House Museums
Edward (Eddie) Pond grew up in Romford, Essex and attended South East Essex Technical College and School of Art in Dagenham and the Royal College of Art.
Pond's most recognisable work are the prints he designed for British Rail that were used across Network Southeast trains, at stations and on promotional material in the early 1990s that depicted buildings and places that could be reached on the rail network. Stylistically, these images are connected to the golden age of railway posters, the lino-cut designs of Edward Bawden, and the paintings and graphic work of Kenneth Rowntree.
Pond's paintings of Dagenham vividly illustrate the Becontree Estate's relationship with the area's old farming traditions, which had been supplanted when the estate was built. This painting of allotments on the estate is a perfect representation of this.
Available now for just £40 plus postage.
Valence House Museum is the local history museum for the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham. Since its formation in 1937, the Museum has continued to collect works of art by local artists and works which depict the local area and its communities. Set within a fifteenth-century moated manor house, the collection includes portraits dating from the sixteenth century to the twentieth century. It's recognised as one of the best collections of gentry portraits in the country.
