Mabel Allington Royds (1874–1941) was born in Bedford. At age 15 she won a scholarship to London’s Royal Academy but opted to study at the Slade. She is famed for her colourful woodcuts of flowers, along with Biblical and Indian scenes, her technique was indebted to Japanese woodcuts.
About the artwork, between 1933 and 1938 Royds made a series of flower prints. ‘Water Lilies’ is an example of her bold woodcut technique combined with a vibrant colour scheme. Although she had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, Royds always enjoyed depicting the simple things that she encountered in everyday life, such as her daughter growing up, and flowers in both full-bloom and in their dying days.
