Mary Fedden was born in Bristol and wanted to be a painter even as a child. She left Badminton School at sixteen and then studied at the Slade School of Art in London under the theatre designer Vladimir Polunin. After serving abroad as a driver in the final years of the Second World War she resumed her career as a painter. In 1949 she moved to Durham Wharf, a complex of studios on the Thames at Chiswick. Two years later she married the artist Julian Trevelyan. Together they travelled in Europe, Africa, India, Russia and America. Since 1946 Fedden has painted prolifically, taught at the Royal College of Art and has had regular exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery, the New Grafton Gallery and many other galleries throughout Britain. A number of her paintings hang in the Tate.
Alfred Daniels was born in the East End of London in 1924. After studying at Woolwich Art School from 1943 to 1944, he did his National Service in the Royal Air Force, resuming his studies at the Royal College of Art from 1947 to 1950. He then toured Florence, Venice, and Sienna and was deeply impressed by the painting of the Italian primitives, The award-winning set of murals he completed for Hammersmith Town Hall in 1954, depicting life on the Thames, are regarded as a modern classic. Soon afterwards, the Football Association held a fine art competition whose judges included the directors of the National Gallery and the Tate; the first prize was won jointly by Alfred Daniels and L. S. Lowry.
