Barbara Jones

Born in 1912, Barbara Jones studied at the R.C.A. and was a pioneer in the field of popular culture, demonstrated by the book ‘The Unsophisticated Arts’ - published in 1951 and described by Peter Blake as “a treasure trove of information about popular art”.

Ruth Artmonsky recently published a book on Jones’ work - “A Snapper Up Of Unconsidered Trifles”. Highly recommended.

And our friend Neil Jennings is currently looking for a home for this incredible mural design, believed to date from 1961, probably designed for Mount Pleasant Sorting Office & Postal Museum. Click the image below to view in full. The image size is 3m (yes, metres) by 27cm.

Any enquiries about this framed original should be directed to Neil Jennings at
