Inspired by writing about Hyman Segal and our logo, we have put together a little Ponckle exhibition in our first floor gallery in York.
Ponckle Fletcher 1934 - 2012 spent many of her most productive years in St Ives, where she was affectionately known as "The Cat Painter of St Ives". She counted Hyman Segal, creator of our cat logo among her good friends and was, by all accounts at the centre of the social life in St Ives. I'm not qualified to write about her career, but one of her sons wrote a lovely biography of his mother, which was published in The Guardian in 2012.
