Jo Jones 'Spanish Village'
Violet Madeline Josette Jones 1894 -1989. A remarkable painter who won prizes as a child; studied at the Slade under Sickert and Augustus John. She had a studio in London and a home in Dorset. Her work can be divided into four periods - from the 1930’s (when she was taken up by the Wildenstein Gallery in Paris), through to her death in Long Bredy. ‘Spanish Village’ this powerful oil on canvas, with the sinister, yet beautifully shadowed, black and mauve mountain looming over the village, is from the 1950’s - when Jones lived among the Sacromonto Gypsies, near Granada. Size: 24” x 29.5”.
