  • About the artist
    Born in Huddersfield, Daphne Reynolds studied at Huddersfield College of Art in the late 1920s, but due to financial pressures, left early to work in her father’s photographic studio. In 1941, she worked at the Civil Defence Department in London where she met her future husband, Graham Reynolds, who became Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings and Paintings at the Victoria & Albert Museum. From the 1950s, Reynolds resumed painting, influenced by American Abstract Expressionism, a major exhibition of which she saw at the Tate in 1959. A regular exhibitor in London and Suffolk, she was a founder-member of Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop and a fellow of the Printmakers’ Council. She died in Bradfield, Suffolk in 2002.
