Patricia, known as 'Trish,' from Blundellsands, enjoyed a privileged childhood as the daughter of wealthy philanthropist William Rhodes who founded Merseyside ship loaders W.H.R. Rhodes and Son. Her oil paintings were exhibited in galleries throughout Europe such as the Paris Salon and won her many awards and entry in the World Who's Who of Women. She was educated at Calder College and attended finishing school in Montreaux, Switzerland, before going on to study art at the University of Liverpool. Her sister Pamela Leah, 83, said: "Patricia loved painting. Even as a child she drew the most beautiful horses. "She progressed to floral studies, still life and landscapes, some of North Wales and of course, the Mersey and I think she even had an abstract period in the 60's." Apart from being an artist Patricia was involved in community and charity work and was a well-known golfer, winning the Northern Women's Open Foursomes in 1960. She retained an interest in art until her death, enrolling at a life-drawing workshop at the age of 87. Pamela said: "Patricia may have seemed a little shy but she had a real sense of humour. She must have done to start painting nudes at that age." Patricia Rhodes entered a painting to the Royal Academy in 2001. She started painting in retirement and her exhibition agents were R Jackson of Liverpool. Her work varied from expressionist inspired landscapes to energetic, richly coloured still life paintings.
The oil probably dates to around 1970s - 1980s.
