The Art of Doris and Anna Zinkeisen

A lavishly illustrated celebration of the lives and artwork of the Zinkeisen sisters.

Beginning with their births in Scotland at the turn of the twentieth century, this volume follows Doris and Anna Zinkeisen from their emergence in London among the most eminent artists of their day to their quiet but highly productive twilight years in rural Suffolk. 

During the sisters’ golden age from the 1920s to the 50s, the Zinkeisen sisters enjoyed huge success and won numerous accolades. They mixed in elite Bohemian circles, visually chronicled in their seductive artwork and designs. Their paintings and design work, murals for luxury ocean liners, and costume designs for stage and film are today emblematic of that period in British art. With more than two hundred color plates, this volume traces the lives of the Zinkeisen sisters, illuminating how women artists of their generation navigated the art world and its prejudices.
