Bette Hastings 'The Ballet School', oil on board of a ballerina in repose , signed 'Bette' bottom right and dated '64 to the reverse, within original painted frame with canvas slip.
The reverse of the painting bears a label for the 'United Society of Artists' and priced at 25 guineas.
Founded in 1921 as the New Society of Artists, the United Society of Artists is based in Carlton Terrace, London holding its annual exhibition at the nearby Mall Galleries in July. It was originally established as an art organisation aimed at giving artists living outside London the opportunity to exhibit in central London. This has obviously changed over the years and artists from across the UK are welcomed. In addition, work of a professional quality in all media is exhibited under its auspices at other galleries in London and throughout Britain, with many of these exhibitions being open to non-members. Election to the Society is based on the production of a satisfactory portfolio of work. A newsletter "News and Views" is circulated to members several times a year.
