Painter, Hermione Hammond (1910-2005) was born in Hexham, Northumberland. One of the few painters still able to describe themselves as 'Chelsea artists', Hermione Hammond was trained there and kept a studio at Glebe Place, Chelsea from 1949 until her death. She attended Chelsea School of Art where her tutors included Graham Sutherland and Henry Moore before furthering her studies at the RA Schools from where she was awarded the coveted Rome Scholarship in 1938. The advent of World War II forced her to cut short her three-year tenure and return to London. After the war, she moved into what had been Charles Rennie Macintosh's studio, where she has remained for nearly half a century. There were some forty purpose-built studios in Glebe Place and, when she first arrived, most were occupied by artists who included Annigoni, Edward Le Bas and Egerton Cooper among the painters and the sculptors Derwent Wood and David McFall. Hammond exhibited at Hans Studios, and in many West End galleries including Colnaghi's, Arthur Jeffress Gallery, the New Grafton Gallery and Hartnoll & Eyre. She has also exhibited at the Parkin in 1993 and a retrospective exhibition was held at Michael Parkin Gallery in 2000. As a student, she received commissions which included the altarpiece in the ecumenical chapel of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh and another post-war commission was the altarpiece in Marlborough House School, Tenterden, Kent. A frequent exhibitor she showed at the RA, NEAC and RP. Her works are in collections which include the Guildhall, London, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow, Fondation Custodia, Paris, the Museum of London, and Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. A studio sale of her work was held at Sotheby's, Olympia in 2006.
