During his long and successful career Cecil Kennedy had many patrons including the Duke of Windsor, the Astor family and Queen Mary who said, “When I see Cecil Kennedy paintings, I can smell the flowers and hear the hum of the bees”. Taking his que from the Queen, from then on Kennedy always included a bee in his compositions and this, like the inclusion of a ladybird, became his signature trademark.

 

As well as exhibiting at the Royal Academy in London, still lifes by Cecil Kennedy were hung at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Hibernian Academy, and the Salon in Paris where he was awarded both a gold and silver medal.

During his long and successful career Cecil Kennedy had many patrons including the Duke of Windsor, the Astor family and Queen Mary who said, “When I see Cecil Kennedy paintings, I can smell the flowers and hear the hum of the bees”. Queen Mary went on to encourage Kennedy to paint with the ongoing use of a ladybird – as seen in the painting being sold here – and from that moment forward it became one of his signature trademarks. Cecil Kennedy exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, the Paris Salon, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. He was awarded a silver medal in 1956 and a gold medal in 1970 at the Paris Salon.
