CECILY HEY (1896-1980)

Hey studied at the Brussels School of Art, Central Schools and the Slade. In 1922 she met Sickert at a Roger Fry lecture and the two became friends, Sickert painting her many times during the 20s. In 1924 Hey married Robert Tatlock, Editor of the Burlington Magazine, and the two shared a house with ‘Bunny’ Garnett and his wife ‘Ray’ Marshall (Cf. No.57). In 1941 Hey moved to North Wales where she modeled figures in historical costume. There is a very good piece on her by Alison Bennett, written for the Burlington Magazine Index Blog (CLICK HERE)

How ‘The List’ Works

Our Lists are published here on the first Wednesday of every month. They introduce at least 100 works to the large stock of oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints, arranged over three floors at our Museum Street building.

An email alert and link to the new List is sent to those who have asked to receive it on the preceding Tuesday evening. However, nothing is sold from The List before 9.30am on the Wednesday. Those of you who are on the doorstep get first go at the new stock, and while we try to keep telephone and email inquiries in strict order of receipt, there will be times when technological overlaps muddy the system.

Images: These are only intended as an indication of the work – please telephone or email if you have any questions about the photograph’s relationship to the original. We reserve pictures for 24 hours while they are being considered. For larger images or to make reservations please email.

Postage: Most works can be packed and posted, inland and abroad. Do ask and we can give you a quote.
