THE FORMER STUDIO OF THE ARTISTS SUFFRAGE LEAGUE

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  BRITTANY STUDIOS
DESCRIPTION + /

Brittany Studios at No. 259 King's Road, Chelsea, was the studio of the Artists' Suffrage League (ASL) in 1913. It was also the residence of Mary Lowndes, its chairman and one of its founders, in 1907. The League may have continued to base themselves at No. 259 until their move to 27 Trafalgar Square, Chelsea, in 1917.

The League, comprising professional women artists, formed in 1907 to produce posters for the first large-scale public demonstration in the campaign for women's suffrage, later known as the 'Mud March'.

In a publication of 1913, the League described how their purpose '"was to further the cause of Women's Enfranchisement by the work and professional help of artists by bringing in an attractive manner before the public eye the long-continued demand for the vote".'
