Gluck (Hannah Gluckstein)
Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist of 2 portraits
Painter. A member of the family of J. Lyons & Co, the catering empire, she trained at the St John's Wood School of Art (1913-16), and then joined the artists' colony at Lamorna, Cornwall. She began to call herself Gluck in 1918, when she adopted men's clothing and took to smoking a pipe. She patented a frame - the 'Gluck Frame'- which was exhibited at British Art in Industry exhibitions and became an integral part of Modernist and Art Deco interiors of the 1930s. Her best known work is of stylised flowerpieces inspired by the floral creations of Constance Spry, an early companion and lover.
