This is a rather special exhibition that reveals both the artistic and private world of these two artists who met at the Royal College of Art after the war and became inseparable, so much so their friends referred to them as Margaretandlionel.

Margaret Green (1925-2003) NEAC, Walberswick Ferry, circa 1965, Oil on Board, H 39 x W 49 cm

It would have been wrong not to include a work depicting Warbleswick as together with neighbouring Southwold it was a place they loved for several decades and I, for one, totally agree with them in that.
