Doris Hatt

Doris Brabham Hatt (24 September 1890 – 27 August 1969),  a painter and printmaker, was a pioneer of Modernism in Britain.

 

Doris used to live in Clevedon at Littlemead on Valley Road with her partner, Margery Mack Smith, who was a local school teacher and weaver. She was an artist, a feminist, a committed socialist and part of the New Woman and Women’s Suffrage movement. See more on the dedicated Facebook page, The Doris Hatt Society
