V is for Viva Talbot my 3rd cousin once removed!

VIVA TALBOT POSTER V1Frances Viva Talbot was born in 1900, her father was Benjamin Talbot inventor of the Talbot Tilting Furnce ( he was me letter F post). She married Thomas Nussey in 1941 and became Lady Nussey a few years later when Thomas inherited a Baronetcy. She is a largely unknown artist who made woodcuts of industrial scenes. Unusual at the time but she obviously had access because of her Father. I have always liked images of what my husband calls “awful factory type stuff”. I prefer this type of art rather than watercolour wishy washy.

There is a good post about her here

    • Hi. how lovely of you to leave a comment. I love the way families merged Steel and Shipping? Some of the Talbots became Methodist ministers and the other half kept Inns!
