Prunella Clough

Born 1919, London.  Died 1999

Prunella Clough attended Chelsea School of Art in London from 1938-39. During the war she had a number of jobs including that of a draughtsman. During this period her work addressed the subject of workers and the industrial landscape but she moved into abstraction, developing collages as well as paintings.

Her first solo exhibition was the Leger Gallery in 1947. She had retrospective exhibitions at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London in 1960, the Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield in 1972, Warwick Arts Trust in London in 1982, Annely Juda Fine Art in London in 1989 and a show of work from the 1970s onwards touring to Camden Arts Centre in London and Oriel 31 Newtown, Wales in 1996.

Her work is in the collections of many major museums including the Tate Gallery and the Arts Council in London.
