Barbara Jones (1912-78) is best known for organising the influential 'Black Eyes and Lemonade' exhibition at the Festival of Britain (1951) and for her interest in craft, folk and popular arts (her book The Unsophisticated Arts (1951) is a classic). During the war she was associated with Recording Britain project; Launching of the Holland Submarine No.1 at Barrow 1901 shows the influence of artists such as Eric Ravilious who preceded her at the Royal College of Art.
