Hello,

NSW Birth 10115/1883 POWELL EDITH MILLICENT - EYRE WILLIAM - FRANCES C - ST LEONARDS


NSW Marriage 15012/1923 LLOYD NORMAN - POWELL EDITH M - MARRICKVILLE

Edith died in England after 1940 ? and Norman died in England 5 Mar 1983. ?
Age is right for these two but there could be others.

Deaths Sep Qtr 1940
Lloyd Edith M A 57 Surrey Mid.E. 2a 530

Deaths Dec Qtr 1951
LLOYD Edith M 68 Plymouth 7a 589

I'm wondering if there is any Electoral Roll or Burial or Probate record that might help.

Thanks,

Dave

Norman Lloyd (16 October 1895 – 5 March 1983) was an Australian landscape painter.

Norman Lloyd was born in 1895 near Newcastle, New South Wales, where he attended primary school. He left school in 1911 and started to work and study painting with Julian Ashton and James R. Jackson in Sydney.

On his 21st birthday in 1916 he enlisted with the Australian Imperial Forces and was transported to Europe where he was seriously wounded in battle a year later. After returning to Sydney in February 1918, he took up painting lessons at the Julian Ashton Art School again. From 1921 to 1926, Lloyd exhibited with galleries in Sydney and Melbourne, showing landscapes and Sydney harbour scenes painted in the more traditional style of his teachers.

From 1926 to 1929, Norman Lloyd visited Europe and travelled widely in Italy and France, exhibiting in the UK, France and Australia, culminating in a solo exhibition at Macquarie Galleries in Sydney.

In the 1930s, Lloyd migrated to London with his wife Edith for good, setting up a boarding house in upmarket St Johns Wood and establishing himself quickly in the new society, being a kind, generous and interested man with a broad horizon. His mansion became a meeting point and home for many Australian expats, among them painters Will Ashton, Alison Rehfisch and George Duncan. The Lloyds hosted pianist Nancy Weir, and war correspondent Harold Fyffe was a close friend, who introduced Lloyd to H G Wells and George Bernard Shaw.

Lloyd established himself also professionally, when he was elected member of the exclusive Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) in 1936 and of the London Sketch Club, over which he presided during 1941 to 1942.

He also kept his connection with Australia by becoming a Fellow of the Royal Art Society of New South Wales, and in 1949 Henry Hanke’s portrait of Norman Lloyd was chosen to be hung in the Archibald Prize of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

From 1933 until 1970, Lloyd exhibited regularly with the ROI, and showed at the Royal Academy of London. The titles testify of Lloyd’s love for mediterranean Europe - Italy, Spain, France, Turkey and Morocco, inspiring joyful land, sea and mountainscapes, in a style that evoked impressionism. Lloyd was a prolific painter who was able to paint fast, preferring textural oil and pastels.

From 1947 onwards, Lloyd spent the summers with Zénaide Chaumette - whom he had met in Paris after the war - in the heart of France in Chassignolles. This liaison strengthened his connection with France and probably led to his exhibiting at several Salons of the Société des Artistes Français from 1947 until 1962, and also at the Salon d’Hiver in Paris.

After the death of Zénaide Chaumette in 1954, Lloyd was willed Chaumette’s house in Chassignolles until he died, and it seems that he moved to Chassignolles permanently in 1974, at the age of 80 after the death of his wife, Edith. He was later found wandering in a confused state in Paris unable to speak, having had a stroke. Fortunately he was able to communicate that he had friends in Chassignolles which lead to the involvement of a nephew in England. The nephew was contacted and arrangements made for him to live in a nursing home in Yorkshire where he died on 5 March 1983. The ‘Times’ of London printed a short obituary.

In 1989, 1990, Lloyd’s work was shown at Savill Galleries in Sydney alongside a number of important Australian artists. In 1990 Christopher Day Gallery, Sydney, dedicated a solo exhibition to Norman Lloyd, and 1991 saw his work again at a group exhibition in Deutscher Fine Art, Melbourne.
