|Biography||Fearon studied at the Slade School of Art and in the Cornish fishing towns of St Ives and Newlyn, where many artists painted out of doors. Her paintings appeared at all the London venues for modern art in the years leading up to and during the first world war, also attracting attention in Glasgow, Dublin, Paris, Venice and Pittsburgh. Like many painters of the period, Fearon used Impressionism to depict contemporary life as transitory but knowable.|
