On the post this week: paintings and illustrations by the artist Grace Lydia Golden (1904-1993). She was born in East London and in the 1920s won scholarships to study at both Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College. Her sketching permit from the War Artists’ Advisory Committee allowed her to paint in public during WWII. An Emergency Food Office (1941) shows people queueing up to collect their ration books in what looks to be an old theatre.
