Exhibited: British Artists’ Exhibition, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, late 1920s


In a gilded oak lap-jointed frame.

The label for the British Artists’ Exhibition held at the Ferens Art Gallery on the reverse of the painting suggests a date of post-1927 for this work, the date when the Ferens was built. Stylistically it can be dated to the late 1920s or early 1930s and, in a broader context, fits in with the tempera revival of this period. Relatively little is known about Beales, who lived in Hampstead, and is recorded as having exhibited a single painting at the Royal Academy in 1948.
