THE PENNYFARTHING GALLERIES
Enid Elliott Linder
Due to the number of enquiries I receive about this artist and her gallery, I have put what little I know here for your information.
"Pictorial & Historical Survey of Babbacombe & St Marychurch" Volume 1, Published in a limited edition in 1980 by Babbacombe & St Marychurch Traders & Hotelier’s Association
Starting in a room at the back of a house in Babbacombe, Enid Elliott Linder, an artist with a great talent for painting silhouettes, was launched onto the UK market in 1972. Within a space of a few months the artist, her husband and 4 helpers were producing 500 pictures a week, the demand was so great that they moved to larger premises on the Teignmouth Road.
By 1980 it was estimated that they had sold between 150,000 and 200,000 pictures all around the world.
They were all produced at the Teignmouth Road premises, and all checked and signed in pencil by the artist.
