SOPER, Eileen RMS, SWLA, RE

 

Eileen Soper ImageEileen was born in England in 1905, the daughter of the well known British artist and printmaker, George Soper. Eileen was taught the art of etching by her father and in the Spring of 1920, at the age of only fifteen, she exhibited a selection of her work at the Print Makers Society of California where her work was an instant success! She then presented her work to the Royal Academy in London and was the youngest artist ever to be accepted for their Summer exhibition in 1921.

 

The majority of her etchings deal with the subject matter of children at play and her work has been praised for its economy of line, its simple but effective composition and for its technical qualities. At the age of twenty Eileen was honoured by having her work purchased by Queen Mary for her personal collection.

 

Eileen was extremely proficient in the creation of etchings, aquatints and woodcuts all of which were printed by her own hand.

 

Eileen Soper was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy, Royal Watercolour Association, Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Scottish Academy. She was a member of the Royal Society of Painters and Etchers, the Royal Miniature Society and a founding member of the Society of Wildlife Artists.

 

Soper’s work is in both private and public collections as well as in a number of national art galleries around the world. Eileen died in 1990 at the age of 85 years.
