Label TextHone met Mainie Jellett in 1917 at the Westminster Art School in London. They remained life-long friends and collaborators, studying together in Paris in the early 1920s under André Lhote and Albert Gleizes. Though Hone’s paintings often resembled Jellett’s formally, the artist herself was not as committed to Cubism as her compatriot, and did not concern herself particularly with theoretical principles. Her painting did, however, inform her stained glass work, to which she committed herself principally from the early 1930s.
