Other Notes: Nellie Richardson was the wife of the artist William Kay Blacklock. They lived in Hemingford Abbots near Huntingdon, and then moved to Polperro.

Bridget Flanagan writes: William Kay Blacklock married Nellie, born in Hackney, a painter in watercolour of flowers, in 1909, and they lived at 46 Gunter Grove, Chelsea. In 1910 their daughter Eleanor, named after Blacklock's mother, was born. Nellie frequently modelled for her husband. In 1913-14 they lived in Walberswick, Suffolk. There is then a gap in the Exhibition addresses until 1918 when they are living in Sunnymede, Hemingford Abbots (on Royal Oak Corner). However I think they came to Huntingdonshire before 1918 having left Walberswick fairly soon after the outbreak of war - because of coastal shelling and also because artists were not allowed to work on the coast for national security reasons. I think they came to Houghton in circa 1915 where they lodged with Miss Bell. William Kay Blacklock had lodged with Miss Bell at The Croft on and off for several years during summer holidays from at least 1907 or earlier. By late autumn in 1922 the Blacklocks left Hemingford Abbots and moved temporarily to Leicester en route for Polperro where William Kay Blacklock died in 1924.

After her husband's death Nellie Richardson moved to London where she exhibited 3 times at the Royal Academy from addresses in the Kings Road and Sydney Street, Chelsea in 1925, 1927 and 1928.

Estimate £200-300

Some loss of colour and foxing to the sky of Hilton.
