Who knew that in 1907 Sylvia Pankhurst painted excellent watercolours of women at work? Some of them were recently on display in Scarborough and have now been bought by the Tate. The pictures were published in the London Magazine and Votes for Women. However, in 1912 Sylvia gave up painting in order to dedicate herself fully to the women’s suffrage cause and the pictures were kept by the family – until now. This is a detail from On a Pot Bank Finishing Off the Edges of the Unbaked Plates on a Whirler.
