Marion Elizabeth Adnams was born in Derby in 1898 where she remained, for the most part, until her death, aged ninety six. During the course of her long life, she forged a reputation as painter of deeply distinctive and dream like visions inspired by the Surrealist movement. Adnams exhibited almost continuously in London and regional art galleries from the late 1930s and examples of her work can be found in many public collections, alongside that of her friends and contemporaries Evelyn Gibbs and Eileen Agar. Despite this, her work is largely forgotten today. This important exhibition brings together the full and diverse range of her art for the first time in almost fifty years in a bid to recapture the legacy of this most remarkable artist.
