Ironically (since Rose Henriques was always trying to raise money for the East End) there was a very successful sale of her paintings last year. This is what the Sussex sale room said: 'The works were found in an attic owned by an acquaintance of Henriques and taken to the saleroom, every picture sold against estimates set in the low hundreds to total just over £30,000. The most dramatic of the picture group was the work titled There Goes Another, At Flying Bomb Incident. The 20in x 2ft oil on canvas depicts powerful searchlights and figures convening around a bomb site', more details of the sale here. And here is some information about Basil and Rose Henriques at the University of Southampton site.
