“Jean Jones was an extraordinary and dedicated artist. Unfortunately, she lived in the shadow of mental illness, and her work has not yet enjoyed the acclaim that it deserves. We are working hard to put this right, and to reclaim her place in the history of post-war British art.”
Nelson Jones, Jean Jones Estate
Jean Jones (1927 - 2012)
Born in London Jean Jones was fascinated with painting the significant places in her life as they changed across the seasons. She particularly loved spending time at her cottage on the edge of Dartmoor amongst the wild moorlands and stark standing stones which became the focus of much of her work.
