About the work
Local to Newington Green, Stewy knew of Wollstonecraft’s connection to the area. Having previously made stencil and laser-cut images of historical and contemporary figures for sites in London, Manchester and Brighton, he researched the historical style of dress and hairstyle for this portrait. Two print editions were produced: 25 on white and 25 on red. He donated the red set to the Unitarian Church and the white to Mary on the Green, a local group fundraising towards the production of a Wollstonecraft statue. In 2015, Stewy produced a third edition printed on green, half of which he donated to the People’s History Museum, Manchester.
