This wonderful impressionist oil painting on board of a female nude is by the American artist Cyril Saunders Spackman, R.B.A, R.M.S (b 1887 – d 1963). The painting is titled ‘Pomana’. Spackman was an architect, painter, printmaker and sculptor. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio and studied architecture at King’s College London where he was a pupil of T. E. Lidiard James. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Cambrian Society, Royal Institue of Oil Painters and at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. One of his commissions was for the famous 1:12 scale Queen Mary’s Dollhouse which was exhibited in Wembley in 1924. His contribution is hung in the library and is titled ‘Fir Trees against a Sunset Sky’. His entry can be found in the Royal Collection, reference RCIN 927384.
This wonderful and vibrant painting is painted using a thick application of paint, the impasto technique. The energy, brightness of color and the way he has captured the light is truly fantastic and truly reflective of the Art Deco mood. The painting is signed by the artist bottom right, only visible when removed from the frame. It has the two original artist labels verso. The labels to the rear of the painted board read: ‘Pomana. Oil by Cyril Saunders Spackman R.B.A., F.S.A., Scot., L.R.I.B.A., The Studio, One Edridge Road, Croydon, Surrey.’
