About this artwork

In 1926, Marjorie Watson-Williams arrived in Paris and adopted the name Paule Vezelay. She was inspired to take the new name from the church at Vezeley, a place she admired. But her real motives behind the name change were to blend in with the cutting-edge Parisian art scene of the time. The print of her work is color-matched to the original and has received the official approval from the National Portrait Gallery. Each time you make a purchase, you're contributing to the ongoing work of the museum.

About the artist

Marjorie Watson-Williams, born in 1892, adopted the name Paule Vézelay for aesthetic purposes when she relocated to Paris in 1926. Having previously studied at prestigious art schools in Bristol, London, and Chelsea, she became a vital part of the Parisian avant-garde scene. Among her circle were notable artists like Kandinsky, Miro, Mondrian, and her close friends, Jean Arp and Sophie Tauber-Arp. She also lived with Surrealist artist André Masson for several years. Her artwork is displyayed in many esteemed museums and galleries in Britain and globally.

Vézelay was a rare British member of the Abstraction-Création group, which she joined in 1934. Aside from her Surrealist-inspired pieces from the 1930s and her wartime sketches, she is recognised as the first British artist to wholly embrace abstract art. After returning to England in 1939, her public visibility waned until a retrospective at the Tate Gallery in 1983. A multi-disciplinarian, Vézelay's work, including painting, sculpture, and engraving, is characterised by its subtle allure and refined simplicity.
