Meninsky, Bernard, 1891-1950; Victoria Station, District Railway

This week on the Post we are asking for help. We bought a painting (which is sometimes in the shop window) from Paul Liss a few years ago. No one knows  who painted it. But someone has suggested Bernard Meninsky and this seems a very plausible idea. So from Monday-Thursday this week we are having four paintings by Meninsky and then on Friday we shall have the anonymous painting. And we would love to know what Persephone readers think. Or, indeed, someone may have another suggestion as to the painter. First of all: Victoria Station District Railway 1918, it’s at the Imperial War Museum and is such an amazing painting, up there with Flora Lion’s painting of a works canteen (on the Persephone Post in April).
