Biography Eileen Mayo
Widely acclaimed in London in the twenties, Eileen Mayo was a strikingly beautiful young woman who initially supplemented her income by modeling for some of the leading artists of the time including Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. She studied design at the Slade School and Central School of Arts and Crafts.
Instructed in lino cutting by Claude Flight, Mayo was invited to participate in The Second Exhibition of British Linocuts at the Redfern Gallery. Kenneth Clark described her designs as 'outstandingly good' and her entries from 1930 to 1934 were acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum. She enjoyed a very successful career as an illustrator and contributor to publications such as Art News & Reviews.
