Framed oil of Cancale lighthouse by Athene Andrade
A simple, but very atmospheric framed oil on canvas painting of Cancale lighthouse in Brittany (which is still there on the quayside in Cancale, and hasn't much changed since this was painted). This is in a mid-century frame with fabric insert, and signed ‘Andrade’ in pencil on the back, with an address in Bromley, Kent, which is apparently where she lived latterly.
Athene Andrade (1908-1975) was a British artist, teacher and print-maker, who studied at the Central School of Arts. Her work was exhibited at the Royal Academy, the National Society of Painters, the Society of Women Artists and other institutions.
