Join The Gentle Author for an illustrated talk on the work of little-known East End painter Dorothy Rendell. Dorothy lived in Mile End Place and taught at Harry Gosling School for years, yet her evocative paintings of east London were barely known in her lifetime.
Through his website Spitalfields Life and book research, The Gentle Author has come across many of east London’s wonderful characters and artists. Along with Doreen Fletcher, whose work is currently on display in the Nunnery Gallery’s Doreen Fletcher | A Retrospective (25 Jan – 24 Mar 2019), Dorothy Rendell is one of these artists, whose paintings are hardly known, yet her work and remarkable story is one worth remembering.
