"HAY FEVER." Repertory Club Success.

11 December 1929, The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954), page 20

…and Mrs. Anketell, South Perth. Ellen, known as "Nell", was the daughter of  Richard John Anketell ( a pioneering surveyor/engineer who surveyed the Western Australia section of the Transcontinental Railway, constructed the No. 1 Rabbit Proof fence and the drainage of the Peel Estates and after whom a suburb of Perth is named) and Annie Feely. Nell was prominent local actress, and appeared in many stage productions in Perth. Before her marriage she was usually billed as "Nell Anketell" and afterwards as "Mrs. Alan Stubbs". Two example reviews from the many that appeared in the Perth newspapers are transcribed here: The West Australian 11 December 1929 p20 : "HAY FEVER." Repertory Club Success. Among the younger generation of Englishmen now writing for the stage none has been more successful than Noel Coward, and few, if any, have been so prolific. The Repertory Club s choice of one of this brilliant young man's comedies, "Hay Fever," for performance at the Assembly Hall last night, was justified in the event. A very amusing piece of work it proved. It was played with a capital sense of its needs, notably in the matter of pace—in this connection Miss Molly Ick, the producer, shares the encomiums due—and the large audience obviously…

"LONDON WALL." A Glimpse at a Social Factory.

18 October 1934, The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954), page 20

…connection Miss Molly Ick, the producer, shares the encomiums due—and the large audience obviously found in it an overflowing measure of entertainment. Under the circumstances, it is a pity that one performance only should have been arranged. ... An able cast gave a very meritorious performance, and well deserved the applause showered upon its work. As Judith Miss N. Anketell (Mrs. Alan Stubbs) differentiated her style cleverly in the pas- sages in which the lady is most obviously play-acting, without falling into exaggeration. Her study was a convincing, and. so far as the part allowed, a gracious and dignified one. The West Australian 18 October 1934 p20 : "LONDON WALL." A Glimpse at a Social Factory. (By "Polygon.") ... Mrs. Alan Stubbs, as Miss Janus, acted with an effective intensity. There is always a mental concentration to her acting that makes its force felt to spite of any imperfections. In the scene where she earns of her rejection by her fiance, though one feels that there is some unsound psychology to the author's writing of the part, she gripped her audience by her very intensity.

Two examples of his work, from early and late in his career, are shown here. These three reviews of exhibitions of Alan's work show his progression over the years. The West Australian 6 April 1948 p14 : ART OF ALAN STUBBS A Painter Of Light (By C.G.). A very pleasant exhibition of water colours by Alan Stubbs will be opened by the Honorary Minister for Supply and Shipping (Mrs. Cardell-Oliver) at the Claude Hotchin Gallery, 900 Hay-street, at 3 p.m. today. The landscapes cover a wide range of Australian scenery, and include a variety of subjects seen under different conditions. The warmth and clarity of our light receives sympathetic treatment, and the skies are usually really well handled.

ART OF ALAN STUBBS Exhibition Of W.A. Landscapes

27 April 1949, The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954), page 10

…a variety of subjects seen under different conditions. The warmth and clarity of our light receives sympathetic treatment, and the skies are usually really well handled. Several sketches on tinted paper give opportunity for a range of greys and the use of body-colour. The artist has broadened his style a good deal, and has gone in for more expression than representation. Many of the pictures show careful study of the scene, sound colour and drawing, and good composition. Further developments in this painter's work may be confidently anticipated, for he is a sound workman as well as a persevering student. The West Australian 27 April 1949 p10 : ART OF ALAN STUBBS Exhibition Of W.A. Landscapes The popularity of Alan Stubbs's paintings of local scenery was evidenced yester- day by the large attendance at the opening of his exhibition by Mr. D. W. Brisbane in the Claude Hotchin Gallery. Mr. Brisbane pointed out that Mr. Stubbs was one of the local artists who have made much progress of late. The quality of his work should give visitors much pleasure, he said, and should enable them to secure pictures which they liked and could live with. He had followed Mr. Stubbs's career with much interest, and was glad…

EXHIBITION BY LOCAL ARTIST

31 October 1951, The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954), page 10

…are used to experiment with atmospheric effects, as in "Sandhills and Clouds," "The Jetty, South Perth." and "Logs." The two last mentioned are among the best pictures in the show. A very pleasing picture is "The South Mole, Fremantle," in which the dark water and some-what dramatic sky convey more than the realities of the scene. Here and there one finds a cer-tain harshness of colour and treatment reminiscent of the artist's early work. but on the whole marked progress has been made. The number of pictures sold is no uncertain evidence that the public appreciates this type of painting. The West Australian 31 October 1951 p10 : EXHIBITION BY LOCAL ARTIST (By C.G.) In each exhibition Alan Stubbs takes a step forward. In his latest show the emphasis is on technique and light, with occasional lapses into a broader and more fluent treatment of landscape, which indicates a probable future development. This shows in "The Wind and the Dust" and "Fire-scorched Trees." A soft grey colouring in "A Perth Skyline" is very attractive also. Other pictures give variety to the show and indicate the range of the painter's interests. Most of the landscapes are rather static; a feeling for wind or water movement would improve them.…
