Painter, sculptor and printmaker. Studied art in Paris, Rome and London, John Skeaping being one of her teachers. Showed in Paris, paintings at the Lefevre Gallery in 1934 and sculpture at the Leicester Galleries in 1939. With her sister Frances Byng-Stamper, Caroline Lucas had been closely associated with the founding of the CASW in the 1930s. In the 1940s and 1950s they ran Miller’s Gallery and Press in Lewes, Sussex (featured in an exhibition at the Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne, 1989). At Miller’s these formidable ladies showed Caroline Lucas’ work as well as that of the Bloomsbury artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, David Jones and the Roberts Colquhoun and MacBryde. Among prints published by the Miller’s Press was a portfolio of six lithographs of Lewes and Brighton, some of Caroline Lucas’ most accomplished work.
