Barbara Jones (1912-1978) studied mural decoration at the Royal College of Art and was part of the circle of artists associated with its heyday in the 1930s. Graphic designer, painter, muralist, writer and broadcaster, Jones championed the popular arts. Her exhibition ‘Black Eyes and Lemonade’ for the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1951 and her book ‘The Unsophisticated Arts’, of the same year, remain landmarks in the appreciation of vernacular English culture.
