To celebrate International Women's Day this year, Liss-Llewellyn has a small but fascinating on-line exhibition entitled Women at War looking at representations of women's war work. Canal Girls (1944) by Evan Charlton (1904-84) is a cosily domestic scene on a barge which belies the important work these 'Idle Women' carried out.
