Brenda King (1934-2011) 'Santo Spirito, Florence' (1974) Oil on board 19.5 x 18.5 cm Signed and dated left hand corner, further inscribed to reverse with title. Naive scene of people on a green outside the iconic Basilico di Santo Spirito, Florence in original distinctive 1970s frame. Brenda King was born in Cumbria in 1934. She enrolled at the Lancaster College of Art from 1950 to 1954 before enrolling at the Royal Academy from 1954 to 1957, indeed, going on to exhibit frequently at the RA summer exhibition. She moved to Cornwall in 1975 with her landscape painter husband Jeremy King (b.1933), and the pair shared a studio in St Just, Lands End. Her distinctively naive and playful style, often capturing incidental figures in quaint, pastoral British scenes, is said to have been strongly influenced by the oils and watercolours of Helen Bradley (1900-1979), another Lancastrian.
