Marguerite Howarth

Artist of Surrey (1908 – 2001)

The object of this website is to provide information regarding Marguerite Howarth, a Lancashire born artist who lived in Woking from the outbreak of World War II until she retired with her husband to Grassington in 1973. During her time in Surrey she produced numerous pictures of buildings and landscapes of the county initially pen and ink drawings but latterly water colours which she exhibited in local art shows. Surrey History Centre suggest that her paintings depict a wide range of Surrey buildings and that their detail makes them a valuable historical resource. You will find on this website biographical details of the artist, a list of known works by the artist and a number of images of her works where these are available
Use, other than in respect of the images, is permitted provided that such use is for non-commercial purposes and the source of the information is acknowledged.

If you have a watercolour or pen and ink drawing by Mrs Howarth, please let us know so that we may add it to the list of Known Works.
