Peggy Angus: Designer, Teacher, Painterby 48
The Guardian called her “design's forgotten warrior” and now the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne is fighting to ensure Peggy Angus receives her due recognition. Born in 1904 in Chile, Angus moved to London with her family when she was a young child. At just 17, she won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art based on her accomplished illustrations. Fellow students included Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman and Percy Horton. Throughout her life she was an important mentor, teacher and collaborator for many artists, and her own work stands the test of time looking fresh and modern decades later. Hopefully the current exhibition will ensure her influence extends to another generation.
