Summary/Review: This lavishly illustrated book celebrates the life of Doris and Anna Zinkeisen, charting the rise of the sisters from a childhood in Scotland, to their emergence as amongst the most eminent artists of their day in London, to a quieter yet still highly productive life during their twilight years in rural Suffolk. During the golden age from the 1920s through to the 1950s, the Zinkeisen sisters enjoyed a huge success and won numerous accolades. Their paintings and design work, including posters, murals and luxury ocean liners, and costume designs for stage and film, are today emblematic of that period in British art. Philip Kelleway is an art historian who has written books on topics including 18th century porcelain, illustration and landscape painting. He is an authority on the work of the Zinkeisen sisters and has previously published Highly Desirable: the Zinkeisen Sisters and Their Legacy. Emma Roodhouse is an art curator and works for Colchester and Ipswich Museums. She also contributes on research projects for the East Anglian Traditional Arts Centre. Nicola Evans is an accomplished artist and conservator of paintings at KSH Conservation Ltd. She has also worked for Damien Hirst at Hirst Science and for the National Maritime Museum in London.
