Dorothy A. Cadman (fl. 1908 - 1927) was an English painter, who predominantly worked in oil and watercolour.

Life and work[edit]

It is likely that Dorothy was born in 1885 in Yorkshire, England.[1] She studied painting and drawing at the prestigious Slade School of Art between 1907–1909, taking lessons from Henry Tonks.[2] Her classmates and contemporaries at the Slade School during this period included Mark Gertler and Maxwell Gordon Lightfoot.[2] Between 1914-1916 Dorothy exhibited six paintings at the London Salon of the Allied Artists' Association which were shown in the dramatic setting of the Royal Albert Hall.[3] A small retrospective exhibition of her work was held at the Fairhurst Gallery, London, in October 1987.[4] Her work is much sought after and has been sold at major art auction houses including Christie's and Sotheby's in London.[5]

The date and place of her death is unknown.
