Phyllis Jerrold   ( 1899  - 1975)

Spring in the hop garden 

Charming example of this unknown British printmaker who studied with her twin sister Daphne at the Slade school school of art in London. What exactly the artist is showing is still a mystery. Is it her, with her sister ? And what are they doing ?

William Townsend (1909-1973) and professor at the Slate school also painted in the hop garden, essential in the process of making beer in various seasons. He was obviously intrigued by the symmetry of the structure of the supporting poles.
