Hermione Hammond (1910-2005) was born in Hexham, Northumberland. She attended Chelsea School of Art where her tutors included Graham Sutherland and Henry Moore. She furthered her studies at the RA Schools and 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.
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 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 many collections, including 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.
