This exhibition will consist of a varied collection of the forgotten artist, Suzanne Cooper’s print work as well as paintings from 1935–39.


Educated at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art, Cooper achieved early success in the art world. In 1935, 19-year-old Cooper was exhibiting her work in West End galleries and being singled out by critics as an ‘outstanding’ young artist.

Her career was interrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War, followed by marriage and motherhood, Cooper laid aside her artistic ambitions and was subsequently forgotten. Reminiscent of the work of Cooper’s contemporaries Christopher Wood and Eric Ravilious, her pieces are charming and surreal, distinguished by the striking originality of her vision.


From £9.05 for the exhibition only.

From £15.90 for full admission.
