Ruth Cunningham

The Essex Art Club, of which Ruth Cunningham was a member, evolved from a sketch club for art teachers and students at the Walthamstow School of Art around 1899, when Walthamstow was part of rural Essex. Since then its membership has grown to include some well known British artists. Its presidents and patrons have included Sir Frank Brangwyn, Sir Alfred Munnings, Mark Fisher, John Nash and Ken Howard.
