Private collection, Ireland

Landscapist and portrait painter Laura Brumm exhibited at the Liverpool Corporation Autumn Exhibition of Modern Art at the Walker Art Gallery in 1905; with the Allied Artists’ Association at the Royal Albert Hall in 1909 and 1911, and at the Royal Academy in 1917 (no. 388 News From Home). Married to Charles Brumm (b. 1853 in Germany), the couple first lived in Southport, where Charles became president of the Birkdale Liberals and chairman of the Birkdale and County Liberal Club. With the outbreak of the First World War, however, Brumm's husband retreated from Merseyside politics and the couple moved south with their two daughters to 12 Harley House, Regent’s Park, London. In the present work she signed herself Brum with a single m, possibly to downplay the German origin of her married name. For further information on the artist see: Dennis Child, Painters in the Northern Counties of England and Wales, Leeds, 1994.
