A charming mid-century portrait of a woman in a headscarf by English artist, Mollie Forestier-Walker (1912-1990). We love Mollie’s loose brushwork here and she’s filled the portrait with character.
Forestier-Walker trained at the College of Art in Bristol and her works were widely exhibited during her lifetime. In 1949, she was represented at the prestigious Paris Salon where she received an honourable mention. She spent the latter part of her life at St Mawes in Cornwall.
The portrait is housed within a good later frame.
Medium: Oil on canvas Overall size: 24½” x 28½” / 62cm x 72cm Year of creation: c. 1950 Provenance: Sweden Condition: Canvas in good condition with one professional invisible repair. Frame with some light wear.
