Mary I. Biggs (exh. 1924-1940)
`The Herbaceous Border` 1932
A charming and colourful watercolour by listed Birmingham artist Mary Biggs depicting a herbaceous border in full bloom - typical of the garden design popular during the 20`s and 30`s, when the gardening ideas of Gertrude Jekyll and her contemporaries were in vogue. The plantsmen among you will no doubt be able to recognize the flowers depicted. A lovely decorative piece and also an interesting historical record. The painting is housed in an excellent period reeded ornate frame in excellent condition and looks really nice on the wall. A good size at 24 x 20 inches overall which will look nice in any location.
Mary I. Biggs was a Birmingham artist who lived in Moseley. She exhibited several times at the Birmingham City Art gallery between 1924 and 1940.
