Mildred Bendall (French/British 1891-1977)

Mildred Bendall was inspired by the Fauvist ideals behind colour and form, having befriended Matisse and Marquet at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Montparnasse. Having moved back home to Bordeaux in the 1920's Bendall founded the 'Société des Artistes Indépendants' and 'Le Studio' which gave aspiring young Bordelaise artists an avant-garde voice. During the 1930s Mildred Bendall found her own individual style, carefully composing her flower pieces, landscapes and harbour scenes with a basic structural insight imposed on her unrivalled feeling for colour.
