Description

Meninsky was a superb draughtsman of the human figure and in 1920 was appointed a tutor of life drawing at Westminster School of Art. He painted so many sitters and portraits that it is difficult to identify many of them. This is possibly an early portrait of his second wife, Margaret, whom he famously painted in a red hat (Ferens Art Gallery) and who subsequently left him taking their children with her, precipitating a return of his depression.
