ARTIST Madeline Green grew up and lived most of her life in Ealing, where she helped to found the Ealing Art Guild, known today as the Ealing Art Group.

She studied at the prestigious drawing and painting schools at the Royal Academy of Arts, where she twice won awards for her exceptionally life-like sketches.

Now, her work is being exhibited at Gunnersbury Park Museum from February 11-May 25. Entry will be free.

Reflections of an Artist: Madeline Green, 1884-1947 highlights her range and styles of pieces, including uncompromising self-portraits, anatomical studies of animals and dreamy renderings of early 20th-century parties, mimes and theatrical costume.

One highlight is her self-portrait, entitled Holland Smock. This oil on canvas was completed in 1914 and was exhibited at the Royal Academy and in the Paris salons.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of special events and workshops.
