Anthea Alley

Anthea Alley (1927-1993) studied in London at St Martins School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Originally a painter, she came to work across a variety of media and is particularly known for her work with welded metal and her metal sculptures using machine stampings left over from manufacturing processes.

Anthea Alley: Works from the 1950s and 1960s - a solo exhibition - is currently at England & Co until 27 September 2014.

A selection of works from the exhibition are on these pages, and further works will be added shortly.
