Portrait Of A Lady In A Green Coat [Mary Beresford Williams]
A beautiful vintage portrait of a young seated lady in a large green coat and a yellow scarf.
The artist, Mary Beresford Williams (1931-2017), was a well-known member of the Newlyn Society of Artists and her paintings often depict candid moments from everyday life.
What do you think is happening in this particular portrait? Could the young lady be reading at home? Or perhaps she’s snoozing on a train bound for London? Either way, it’s very nicely done and captures a simple passing moment using gentle, muted tones.
