Mostly Uninvited 704

Charlotte Despard. Aristocratic widow, suffragist, novelist, Sinn Fein activist, vegetarian and anti-vivisection advocate.

In fact, my lovely (and informed) friend, Hilaire, has pointed out that the above is not true:

“Hi Alison. Missed this when you first posted it. It is from Brian Barnes’s mural Battersea in Perspective, but Time Out is wrong in identifying this face as Charlotte Despard. It is Hilda Hewlett, the first British woman to gain a pilot’s licence. She was also a pioneering business woman, setting up an aircraft manufacturing plant in Vardens Road, SW11, shortly before the outbreak of the First World War. Jeanne Rathbone has written about her here:https://sheelanagigcomedienne.wordpress.com/tag/hilda-hewlett-1st-women-in-britain-to-gain-a-pilots-licence/
Charlotte Despard is included in the Battersea in Perspective mural with an image based on a photo of her addressing an anti-fascist rally in Trafalgar Square in 1933 at the grand age of 89!”

Thanks Hilaire, much appreciated.

Taken from an article by David Rosenberg in Time Out (No.2320, March 17th-23rd, 2015) about a mural entitled Battersea In Perspective. The mural, which is on Dagnall Street, was painted in 1988 by Brian Barnes. Photograph by Rob Greig.

The Time Out was found on a train.

If You Are New Here: This project started with me sewing junk-mail faces onto a big woollen blanket. It has since expanded to include images from magazines and leaflets, I find in bins and on public transport. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the portrait was part of some junk mail, pushed through my letterbox. I will always credit photographers, illustrators, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.

If You Are New Here: This project involves me sewing faces, from the obscene amount of junk mail that finds its way into my house, onto a big woollen blanket. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the junk mail was pushed through my letterbox. Or else it was inside of a newspaper. I will always credit photographers, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632.
