Joan Warburton

Joan Warburton (1920-1996) was one of the first pupils at the East Anglian School of Painting founded by Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett-Haines in 1937.  She flourished in this environment and helped Cedric in his famous garden at Benton End, Hadleigh, becoming a knowledgeable and enthusiastic plant person. Joan Warburton is known for her still lifes and landscapes and exhibited regularly in London. This gorgeous group of pastels come from a folio marked ‘Plants at Hadleigh and Cedric’s Greenhouse’ 1959.
