About this item

This is a beautiful watercolour by Maude M Turner entitled 'Ladies taking tea in a garden'.

Circa 1900, it is signed in the bottom right hand corner.

The painting depicts a very picturesque scene of two ladies enjoying their tea  served in a colourful garden which is in full bloom. It is a very relaxed scene where the ladies try to catch up enjoying a sunny day outside. 

It is a lovely painting.

Maude Mary Turner (1862 - 1947) - British painter.  She was the second youngest of a family of six. The family was very well to do and lived in the Boltons - Chelsea, London.

Unfortunately there are no records regarding Maude's education or when, how and why she took up painting, but as an adult she exhibited prolifically from 1891 to 1908 at the 'Dudley' and 'New Dudley Gallery' London (50 paintings) the 'Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours' (2 paintings) the 'Society of Women Artists' also in London. (23 paintings)

A work entitled 'Her First Sitting' was selected for the 1903 Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.  Maude worked and lived in London between 1891-1892.

She moved to Wimborne, Dorset in 1893, and took up residence at Melbury Lodge, most likely with her father who is recorded living there at one time.  Melbury Lodge exists today and has been described by a local historian as an “unimposing private dwelling house”.

Maude Turner, who remained a spinster throughout her long life relocated to Kensington, London, in 1911, and died at Colehill Gardens, Bishop's Park, Fulham, in 1947, aged 85
