About the Art: Very good condition; laid down on board with the original mat glued to the margin of the paper - well outside the image. The title is written by hand in the upper margin of the paper.
About the Artist: Peggy Wyatt was a contemporary of the English artist Christopher R. W. Nevinson, who mentions her in his autobiography. She applied, unsuccessfully, to the War Office during WWII for service as a War Artist. It could be that further evidence of her life and work have been obscurred by marriage and subsequent use of her husband's surname - whcih among artists occured quite freqently. Perhaps a little more research would reveal a wealth of art by a Peggy with another surname.
