Woman sitting reading (1932). Francisc Şirato (Romanian, 1877-1955). Oil on canvas. Municipal Museum of Bucharest.
Şirato is skillful in the use of colours. His painting is lyrical, and he has a warm, affective way of approaching the world. His work is varied, complex, and impressive in its emotional intensity.
Nina Leen - Jo Ann Kemmerling, 1954.
Reading. Ethel Leontine Gabain (French-English, 1883-1950). Oil on canvas. Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
For financial reasons and due to a fall in the print market, Gabain moved over to painting with oils. She sent her first oil painting, Zinnias, to the R.A. in 1927, where it was well received. She also painted a number of landscapes in oils.
