Mabel Royds 2021 pocket year planner
This gorgeous and practical month-to-view 2021 year planner features a colourful and striking floral masterpiece Magnolia by Mabel Royds, from the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection. Compact size complete with durable protective plastic sleeve cover.
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.
Mabel Royds (1874–1941) was an English artist best known for her woodcuts. In 1913 she married the etcher, Ernest Lumsden, who also taught at Edinburgh College of Art, and together they travelled through Europe, the Middle East and India. Under the tutelage of Frank Morley Fletcher, Royds began creating colour woodcuts. Fletcher taught classes on the traditional Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking process.
