Joy Hester and friends


Hester’s work was closely bound up with her remarkable life story and personality; her intensity and vitality as a young artist during the war years when she was married to Albert Tucker, her struggle with Hodgkin’s disease, and her passionate and fulfilling relationship with Gray Smith from the late 1940s until her untimely death at the age of 40. Deborah Hart traces Hester’s artistic development from her student drawings, to her powerful shell-shocked faces of the mid-40s that drew upon film footage of the Nazi concentration camps, and the personal images of lovers and children in the 1950s.
