Jean Rose: the Poetry of the Everyday

Jean Rose was among the first artists to enrol at the Bath Academy of Art in the late 1940s. Sixty-five years later she is still at work in the city, producing tellingly observed paintings of shoppers, street vendors, dog-walkers and garden centre visitors. These works celebrate everyday social activities, whilst paying homage to the methods of earlier painters such as Edouard Vuillard and Piero della Francesca. Jean Rose has exhibited widely, and all works will be for sale in this, her first one-woman show in Bath since 2008.
