Magnolia About 1936

Not on display

Between 1933 and 1938 Royds made a series of flower prints. Although she had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, Royds always enjoyed depicting the simple, yet beautiful, things around her. In ‘Magnolia’ the artist has used the stems of the magnolia plant to create a lively image, despite the muted tones, that leads the eye around the composition.
