Happy New Year to all readers of the Persephone Post. And thank you so much to some of you who sent cards, they are so much appreciated. Of course the Post has become slightly old-fashioned (unsurprisingly, since it's twenty years old!) but there are enough Persephone readers who enjoy it for us to want to continue. So here we go with 2022. One of our Christmas presents was Voyaging Out: British Women Artists from Suffrage to the Sixties (2019) by Carolyn Trant. The chapters are partly chronological and partly thematic, this week on the Post four of the (numerous) women painters who studied at the Slade. Here is Mary Adshead's 1935 Portrait of Daphne Charlton.
