Mary Charlotte Greene Painting

CUNNINGHAM WHITE'S
Oil on canvas by Mary Charlotte Greene (1860 - 1951) likely depicting Lammas Land or Coe Fen in Cambridge. Signed and dated (1946) with monogram to bottom left corner.
A characterful distressed gilt gesso frame and some age related cracking to the paint give this picture a provocative weathered country house feel.


H: 47.5cm W: 68cm D: 4cm

Born in 1860 in Takeley, Essex, Mary Charlotte Greene had a passion for painting from a young age. She studied at the Colarossi Academy in Paris, while staying with her sister Helen, before training at the Royal Academy in London.

Her initial dismay at a family decision to live in Harston, Cambridgeshire, grew into a love of the village, the surrounding countryside and the nearby town of Cambridge. Working from a studio in a side road off St Andrew’s Street, she became a prominent member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and served as its President from 1926-29.

She was also the Aunt of famed author Graham Greene.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We work from a converted industrial unit in the characterful, vibrant and independently-minded community of Totnes, in beautiful South Devon.
