Walker, Ethel, 1861-1951; Iris and Kathleen

Iris and Kathleen (1935) is at the Harris Museum. It’s by Ethel Walker, details here; 107 of her painting are on ArtUk and 100 at the Athenaeum site (another very good resource, where the images are uploaded by volunteers). Dame Ethel Walker had a ‘reputation as one of the outstanding British women artists of her period’ (ArtUK) and decades ago there was an exhibition of her work along with that of Frances Hodgkins and Gwen John. O tempora o mores!
