History

Catharine Carrington (née Alexander) was the sister-in-law of the Bloomsbury group painter Dora Carrington. She was born in 1904 in rural England, and educated primarily by her father - a schoolmaster and later craftsman - before attending Slade Art School at University College, London. In 1925 she married Dora’s brother Noel Carrington, who worked in the publishing and printing business, including editing at Penguin Books. The Carringtons had three children, Paul, Joanna and Jane, and resided in Hampstead before moving to a farm called Long Acre after World War II, where they lived for many years. Noel Carrington lived into his nineties, and Catharine died in 2004.
