A Composition Art Print
Jellett trained under William Orpen in Dublin before moving on to Paris in 1920 with Evie Hone. The friends studied first under André Lhote, and then Albert Gleizes, whose non-representational, highly geometrical paintings proved a strong influence on both artists. Jellett began to analyse rhythm, colour and form in her own work, but also drew on long-standing pictorial traditions. In the mid-1930s she began to use a wider range of colour and produced compositions that were more organic in character.
