Comments

I believe this is Alice Rebecca Kendall FRSA (1922-2011).   Known to her friends as Becky. Having won various prizes at the Edinburgh College of Art, Kendall became a professional artist and exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Academy of Arts, Chelsea Gallery, Guildhall London, the Chenil Gallery and the Paris Salon. Her book, Funny Fishes, combined her love of art, writing and zoology. She wrote articles, poems, illustrations and book reviews for numerous publications, including Edinburgh College Art Magazine, Strand Magazine, Punch, Art and Design, the Mail on Sunday and the Sunday Times. Kendall was a life governor of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the founder and first editor of the Federation of British Artists Quarterly (1971-74) and president of the Society of Women Artists (1976).
