Margaret Rowney

The Art of Drawing and Printmaking

17 April to 8 September 2019
  • FREE

Margaret Rowney was born in 1908 and grew up in Hampstead in an

artistic household; her father Walter was an amateur painter, and ran the

family business manufacturing art supplies. Margaret and her father would

regularly walk on Hampstead Heath with their sketch books, spinning a

palette knife to decide which view to paint. This appreciation of nature

and her surroundings underpinned a prolific and unique career, which

this exhibition will examine 20 years after the artist’s death in 1998.

Margaret Rowney’s work will be woven together with that of other artists

in the Burgh House collection, providing a colourful exploration of aspects

of her life and art.
