“One is a portrait in acrylics of my niece who is a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit in Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary.

I painted it in tribute to her and all her NHS colleagues who have been helping in the fight against the coronavirus.

The other is a painting in oils of a local scene taken from a Lilian Reams b&w photo from I believe the 1920s (with kind permission of the Lilian Ream Trust).”

 

Cliff has kindly sent us some more work from his Lilian Ream work, which is a fantastic way to show you the work from this local photographer. From the Lilian Ream Trust website:

Lilian Ream was a remarkable woman who ran a number of businesses in Wisbech including the Borough Studio. She started her photographic career, at the age of 17, as an apprentice to Alfred Drysdale, a Wisbech photographer and, after working with a number of other local firms, she started her own studio in 1909.

In time she took over the photographic businesses in Wisbech and became a well-known figure in the area until her retirement, at the age of 72, in 1949. The family firm she built continued until 1971 and over this period she amassed a large collection of photographic negatives.
