Mary Adshead (1904-1995) studied at the Slade School of Fine Art (1920-24) under Henry Tonks. In 1924 Tonks selected her for a mural commission at Highways boys’ club in Shadwell, working with Rex Whistler. She became a prominent muralist, creating decorations for the British Pavilion at the 1937 Paris International Exhibition. She also illustrated several books. She was married to Stephen Bone, son of Muirhead Bone. Her prominent career included designs for London Transport and the Post Office. Adshead had a retrospective at Liverpool Art Gallery in 2005.
