Bip Pares (1904-1977) - Original 1934 Graphite Drawing. Inscribed and dated. In fine condition.From a folder of graphite drawings and watercolours by Bip Pares (1904-1977). The sketchbook is dated 1934 as are many of the individual studies within, so all are expected to be dated at this year. Ethel â Bipâ Pares was born on 27th February 1904 in the Thames-side village of Clewer, just beyond Windsor. She was the second child of the marriage of Basil Pares (1869-1943) and his wife Caroline Evelyn Whistler (1874-1959), who had married in Norfolk in 1902. Her father was a younger son of the well-to-do family of John and Katharine Pares. A Lancing and Cambridge (Emmanuel) man, Basil Pares became a surgeon, served as a civilian in the South African wars of 1899-1901, and then transferred to the army, becoming Surgeon-Major of the Royal Horse Guards in 1906. He served in the Great War, picking up a DSO in 1915 and a CMG in 1916, and was mentioned twice in despatches. Her best and most striking work was done in a highly commercial British art-deco style. Her more naturalistic designs, although pleasing, are (to my eye at least) a little less successful in comparison. She seems almost to have relished the challenge of working in a cost-controlled exercise limited to two or three colours. Her designs are bold. Her use of colour confident and assertive. Her handling of lettering purposeful and assured. There is a distinctive vitality which stands comparison with the very best of twentieth-century design. One measure of her success and broad appeal is that her designs were very often retained for the American editions of the books she had worked on â " something very rarely the case at this period. She has long been admired and collected â " but as she is said to have designed some 600 dust-jackets in all, there are plenty of examples still out there waiting to be found. You may well find some at this weekâ s York National Bookfair â " Iâ ll be there looking as well.For more information please click here. Size: Medium (15-30cm) Framed: No Style: Art Deco.
