A neglected female artist – have we or have we not heard that phrase before?! This is Eleanor Best (1875-1957) and this 1941 painting is called Here is the News and it's at Newport Museum and Art Gallery. What a gem! A novel all on it's own. Look at the incredible detail. Making a comparison with Vermeer would not be far-fetched. Please please write to us if anyone knows who Eleanor Best was.
