This week on the post: paintings by the artist Grace Lydia Golden (1904-1993). She was born in East London and in the 1920s won scholarships to study at both Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College. Her sketching permit from the War Artists’ Advisory Committee allowed her to paint in public during WWII. This is An Emergency Food Office (1941) showing people queueing for their ration books.
