        Margaret Chapman (1940 - 2000)


        A lovely little oil on board signed M Chapman of Edwardian figures on a french beach, painted in a naïve style. Margeret Chapman studied at the Liverpool College of Art alongside John Lennon. Her street scenes and beach scenes drew comparisons with LS Lowry.


        More on the life of this elusive artist can be found from the following 2 sources:

        Margaret Chapman née Duxbury (18 November 1940 – 28 July 2000) was a British illustrator and painter. Born in Darwen, Lancashire, she studied at Liverpool College of Art alongside Stuart Sutcliffe and John Lennon. Her work was often reproduced as limited edition prints and sold in more than 50 countries.

        Her oil and gouache paintings often featured Edwardian street scenes, usually – but not exclusively – in the north of England and drew comparisons with L. S. Lowry.

        In 1978 she published a book of her most famous paintings called When Steak was a Shilling a Pound. Her great-uncle was Charles Lightoller who was Second Officer of The Titanic and a survivor of its sinking.

        She introduced John Lennon to J.D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye while they were students in Liverpool
